We are on the big screen again! Many of you know we did helmets for “Talladega Nights the Ballad of Ricky Bobbie” so it shouldn’t be a surprise that we did the helmets in the beginning scenes of the horror movie Final Destination 4. I don’t know if you can see the helmets because I don’t like gory movies so if you have seen it and remember if you can see the helmets please leave us a comment.

For those that have never heard of the Final Destination movies here is a little information from all movie guide. 

“The Final Destination series gets a kick-start with this fourth outing, headed up by the production team behind the second film — director David R. Ellis and writer Eric Bress. The New Line franchise will be presented for the first time in 3-D with this installment focusing on a teenager that dodges a trip to the grave at a racetrack, only to find that death has a way of equaling the playing field after the fact. Shantel VanSanten, Bobby Campo, and Hayley Webb star in the sequel. – Jeremy Wheeler, All Movie Guide”

Richard Petty 200 win custom painted helmet

Richard Petty 200 win custom painted helmet

 

How cool is it to paint for the King! Starting to paint helmets in the late 1990’s I never thought I would have the opportunity to Paint a helmet for Richard Petty. It was a pleasant surprise when we were asked earlier this year if we could replicate Richards open face Bell helmet he wore during his 200th win.  This year’s Coke Zero 400 July 2-4 2009 marks the 25th anniversary of Richard Petty’s historic NASCAR win.

On July 4, 1984, Petty captured his 200th carer NASCAR victory in the Independence Day holiday classic at Daytona International Speedway with President Ronald Reagan in attendance. It was the first time a sitting President of the United States attended a NASCAR race and it was the final time Petty won a NASCAR race.

Indocil now offers billet aluminum pumper tubes for forced air helmets.

by ryanyoung on Oct.10, 2009, under In the Store, Indocil News, Products

Because Indocil is constantly looking for new options for custom helmets we are always watching helmet trends and searching for new products. Because of this we are now pleased to now  offer billet aluminum pumper tubes for forced air helmets. We have seen a very few of these tubes over the last few years but have never been able to find a manufacturer that offered them. The bottom line is they look cool as $&(? and we had to have them in our catalog so our only option was to have them made for us.

Although anyone with a small amount of helmet knowledge can replace the tube we suggest having our helmet specialist install your tube. Some tubes are epoxied and some are riveted and a we guarantee a factory finish when installed in house. Pumper tubes installed are $64.76 and $54.76 for the tube separate.

Indocil now offers billet aluminum pumper tubes for forced air helmets.

by ryanyoung on Oct.07, 2009, under Indocil News, Racer News

Fayetteville, NC. October 3, 2009. Chris Ferguson in his #22 Rocket Chassis took home the win Saturday night in the Carolina Clash’s 50 lap, $5,000 to win main event at Fayetteville Motor Speedway. Ferguson was able to weather the Saturday night, full moon atmosphere to bring home his second win of the season.
The win moves Ferguson into 3rd in points just 8 points out of the 2nd place position which is held by Ricky Weeks. Dennis Franklin’s bad luck made him plummet from 2nd in points all the way down to 4th in points. Franklin now trails 3rd place Ferguson by 30 points. Jeff Smith is still your current high point man with a 42 point lead over Ricky Weeks in 2nd.
Congratulations to Chris from the whole crew at Indocil.

Indocil Driver Jason Meyers clawing his way closer to the World of Outlaws #1 Spot

Jason Meyers Sprint Car

If you haven’t noticed the World of Outlaws currents points battle heating up then you haven’t been paying attention.  Over the past four weeks, the spread between the top 3 contenders has closed from over 100 points to within 38 points after the completion of Friday night’s race at Eldora Speedway.  But the real heat is between the top two with Jason Meyers trailing Donny Schatz by only 9 points with 8 features left in this 2009 season.

 Meyers lined up in the 5th row of the A main .  As the green flag waved, Meyers raced underneath Darrah down the front chute and into 1, but then Darrah used momentum around the top to move back past off of turn 2.  On the first restart Meyers went low to try and take the 7th position, but was unable to make the pass.  Meyers continued to try to find a hole with no success.  On lap 12, the caution flew again for the flat RR of new leader Terry McCarl.  Again another restart, but still no passing.  Finally Meyers was able to pass the 15H of Hafertepe off of turn 4 to move into the 6th position.  On lap 17, the red flag flew for the #2 car of Dale Blaney.  Prior to the red flag, Meyers had closed on the 3c of Conley and on the restart Meyers went way up in the cushion and made the pass around the 3c machine.  Meyers had now moved into the 5th position and was hot on the heels of the #89 of Darrah.  Then  Darrah and Saldana touched sending Darrah into the inside wall.  Meyers just cleared Darrah almost clipping him and possibly ending his night.  The crash moved Meyers into the 4th position directly behind the #9 of Joey Saldana.
 
     On the restart with only 4 laps to go, Meyers went high to try and pass Saldana but could not gain enough momentum.  The two cars raced nose to tail for the remaining laps with Jason Sides taking the win, followed by Tim Shaffer, Joey Saldana, Jason Meyers, and Cale Conley rounding out the top 5.
 
     The 4th place finish for Meyers versus the 6th place finish of championship point’s leader Donny Schatz moved Meyers to within on 9 points now.  With rain canceling the Saturday night at Lernerville, the two will head into one of the toughest tracks in the country next weekend separated by 9 mere points.  “This is our chance.  You don’t get these chances every day and this is it.  The #15 team and the #9 team are two of the toughest teams in the business and I can see this being a fight right down to the end.  We are ready for, and to be honest, looking forward to it,” said Meyers.
