Here's some phenomenal swag to close this week. Patrick Gallagher is a driver at Mid Ohio Race Track, an engineering student and life-long Buckeye fan. Thanks to designer Declan Brenan, Patrick was the most stylish driver in the local round of the Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup:

Swag!

Sadly, these helmets are unavailable for retail. This one-of-a-kind edition was auctioned off in aid of Hematosis and Thrombosis Center at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.

You can get the full low-down on the challenges of designing the helmet over at Andy Blackmore Design's page.

Nice.

And how's this for teamwork?

If only we all had that every time we needed to change a tire

Makes you wonder why NTB always seems to take 3 hours to put on a new set of tires.

Very cool. I taught Patrick when he was in middle school. He was racing back then. Glad to see him fulfilling his life-long dream.

Health, Mr. G. I use Remy on this site to stay anonymous. I guess I'm kind of blowing that now.

Patrick, I'm not sure if you remember, but In sixth grade I always had students make a name tag that had three things on it:
1) Something that made them unique or special.
2) Something they cared about.
3) Something they liked to do.
I remember that you drew racing as one of your three topics. I thought it was remarkable that you were racing at such a young age.

In eighth grade I had students write down a goal for eighth grade, a goal for high school and a goal for 10 years from now. Again, you had racing as one (if not two) of your goals. I'm glad that you are making this goal a reality and wish you success in the pursuit of your dream.

Your Buckeye helmet was great. Since they auctioned the last one (for a great cause), will you get a new one?
