LEXINGTON, Ohio – Graham Rahal makes no secret of the fact he’s from Columbus and is a diehard Ohio State Buckeyes fan.
And though the driver of the No. 15 Steak ‘n Shake RLL Honda never donned a Buckeyes uniform at The Ohio State University, he’ll do the next best thing at this weekend’s Honda Indy 200 – he’ll wear a replica Buckeyes crash helmet, designed by Polen Designs.
Here’s a look at the helmet, via Rahal, a local NBC affiliate reporter and more information from Columbus Dispatch reporter Tim May.
