Take a helmet and you will be fine.
Yes. 1/8 mile track at Qualcomm stadium in California, hosted by

Because of this, I called Firebird Raceway in Phoenix (1/4 mile track), to ask their policy and practices, and they told me to not waste my time showing up without at least a 2010 Snell rating clearly printed somewhere on the helmet.

Sounds like Virginia is a lot more lenient.
