IndyCar racer Graham Rahal unveiled an Ohio State-themed racing helmet that he was to wear at Sunday’s Honda Indy 200 in Ohio. Apparently, he was able to use some of Urban Meyer’s Buckeye magic and drive his car to victory.
According to College Football Talk, Rahal won his second race of the season while wearing the Buckeye-themed helmet. It was really a great day for racing and football fans everywhere.
If you don’t remember what the helmet looked like, well it was a pretty good representation of an Ohio State helmet, just with less Buckeye stickers on the back.
I think Rahal can add a few more stickers after his win Sunday.

Maybe Rahal will continue to ask for college-themed helmets to be made for the rest of the season. It worked once, so why wouldn’t it continue to work?
