NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. to wear Rebels-inspired helmet at Talladega
NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will wear a Ole Miss-inspired helmet at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday to celebrate the Rebels' early season win over Alabama.
Stenhouse Jr. is a Mississippi native and a huge Rebels' fan, and although the win occured almost a month ago, Stenhouse Jr.'s decision to represent Ole Miss this weekend is based on one factor: location, location, location.
The helmet incorporates the same color scheme the Rebels used in their 43-37 win over the Crimson Tide, as well as a shark fin on top to signify Ole Miss' signature "Landshark Defense" celebration.
Even Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze enjoyed the sentiment.
Love this guy!! And the helmet is pretty cool too https://t.co/bnTdV1K6fB— Hugh Freeze (@CoachHughFreeze) October 20, 2015
