I'd like to thank a fellow RDC'er, Doug Hayduk, for converting my old vcr to digital. In 1990 only Geoff Bodine wore a motocross style, full face helmet. By 1992, 38 or the 43 starters at the July Daytona race wore full face helmets, without a rule mandating them. My aluminum cooler box was replaced by a cheap, but effective, Coleman intermediate cooler. Half of the 38 starters had Coleman coolers in them.

I can't remember the exact numbers, but Scott Taylor from Illinois, would make the tig welded, double wall boxes for $75-80 per box, plus the element cost, versus under $20 for a Coleman.
