The highly coveted BELL Golden Helmet award went down to the last moto of the last day. The Texas Winter Series races all small bikes on Saturday's and big bike classes on Sunday's. Since the points came down to Riley Allen (50 & 65) and Vann Martin (250 & 450), there were people counting points all weekend. After a careful review of points, the winner of the 2011 BELL Golden Helmet is ........ drum role please ........, Riley Allen of Kennedale, Texas. Riley Allen beat out Vann Martin by a mere point.
