It’s a way to tell the rest of the world, “Yes, I love car racing.” The process is simple: Wear your helmet on the job and share a photo via Instagram on October 16. The person behind our favorite photo wins a new Stilo helmet.


In order to submit your entry, follow Grassroots Motorsports on Instagram, then post your photos with the hashtag #WearYourHelmetToWork and make sure you tag Grassroots Motorsports in each post. You can also upload your photos directly to our Facebook page or post them in the comments below. At the end of the work day, we'll share some of our favorite photos with the world, and give the person who submitted our favorite shot a brand-new Stilo Helmet. All photos must be submitted by 5 p.m. Eastern.

If you need some inspiration, here are some of our favorites from the past:

Since I'm still teleworking this will be easier to do this year. Although SWMBO will look at me funny and just shake her head mumbling in Korean.

Agreed. Telecommuting will make this much much easier.

So this was posted on the 6th was the deadline 5:00 pm on the 6th?  Last year I sent a photo of me in but I think I missed the deadline.

Haha...Somehow my brain also didn't even register that line of text tucked in there, multiple times, as I was scrolling through. I don't know if it was not enough space (previously touching the picture on my screen) or not enough caffine. Either way, now you've got it so that my brain can't unsee it. Thanks!

Do you really want an image of me sitting on my sofa in my underwear, wearing a helmet?

Don't worry, we edited the title. We realized it was a little tricky to see the official day.

Can't even take a pic in a server room this year, I'm working from home so my pic would yet another person in a home office with a helmet. This company does have a server repair/setup room, but I haven't been in the building yet.

I'll play, but me in my kitchen home office playing with a dashboard or statistical model is going to be pretty not thrilling, lol.

I'll be doing WFH from my home office. I'll find a way to make it more interesting (maybe).

The day job is in investments,  Work-From-Home due to COVID adds a few added facets throughout the day: like "strategic" professional attire for video conferences and a diaper change here and there. #WearYourHelmetToWork @grassroots_motorsports

Our company operates buildings in NYC so our team has to come into the office. So we made the most of it.

Happy Wear Your Helmet to Work Day.

I was involved in a collision on the way to work today with my helmet in the passenger seat beside me. Apparently I should have worn my helmet on the way to work today. Insult to injury, I won't be getting in to take a photo to enter. I'm okay-ish at least.

I'm furloughed, but working on home improvement projects.  Here is me admiring my newly-installed medicine cabinet.
