Battle for Bell Golden Helmet Award

February 5, 2014 (Alvord, Texas) – As Round 4 of the 14th Annual Honda of Houston/FMF AMA Texas Winter Series approaches this weekend at Oakhill Raceway, the class championships are not the only battles raging.  A war between youth riders is being wagged for this years Bell Helmet award.  With two rounds still to add points, its the youngest of the riders showing the way.  In only three rounds, the gate has dropped for over 2100 riders from 21 different states, Canada and Mexico.

The Bell Golden Helmet Award gives the rider who shows the greatest consistency against the greatest number of riders.  A rider earns one point for every position they are ahead of plus one bonus point for a moto win.  The points are then added together from all classes and the rider with the greatest total points is the recipient of the Bell Golden Helmet.

Branden Walther from Denton, Texas leads the stacked field of riders.  Tommy Leclere IV (Pearland, TX), Brock Walker (Cleburne, TX), Kaeden Amerine (Great Bend, KS), Shelby Peterson (Ft Worth, TX) and Grant Harlan (Roanoke, TX) all have over 400 points toward the award.  The rider who finishes runner up will receive the Renthal Bar Award for their efforts.
