The coolest helmet at Daytona this weekend hands down belongs to Tony Stewart.

On the back of the three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion’s helmet is a phrase that Dale Earnhardt Jr. wrote to describe his father in a column that originally appeared on on Oct. 18, 2000:

“No fire could burn his character, no stone could break it”

If you knew Earnhardt, that description is spot on and quite a tribute from a son to his father.
