Laguna Beach, CA—Michael Lewis has a new look for the 2009 race season after teaming up with Ryan Young, of Indocil Art and Design, based in Rock Hill, South Carolina, who painted two of Michael’s helmets that feature cutting-edge graphics.
Michael was referred to Ryan and Indocil from Kyle Kietzmann, of Bell Racing, and is extremely pleased with the finished helmets. “Ryan did an awesome job on the helmets,” said Michael. “He’s a great guy to work with, and he’s very talented.”
All of Michael’s racing helmets have included horizontal stripes, which Ryan kept as a theme in these two new designs.
Michael has already caught the attention of many in the racing community by starting off the 2009 season in prime form, earning a second-, fifth-, and sixth-place finish in the USAC California Pavement Ford Focus Car Series, and fourth and eighth in the Formula BMW Americas series. For the remainder of the season, Michael will draw attention for not only his driving ability, but the cutting-edge graphics on his helmet. Look for Michael’s new attractive helmet graphics at one of his upcoming races: in the USAC California Pavement Ford Focus Car Series on Saturday, May 2, at Stockton 99 Speedway in Stockton, California; and the Formula BMW Americas Championship, April 24–26, at Virginia International Raceway.
