Husky Football Helmet Car to Be Donated to Museum of History & Industry

SEATTLE – University of Washington athletic department officials announced Thursday, that the Husky Helmet Car will be donated to MOHAI, the Museum of History & Industry. The helmet car grew fame from circling Husky Stadium on a track following every Washington score, with members of the UW band and cheer squad riding in celebration. Husky Stadium is completing a $261 million renovation, which included the removal of the track, resulting in a lack of space for the helmet car to run.

The car will be donated to MOHAI on Thurs., Aug. 15, at 10:30 a.m. in a ceremony open to the public and media.
