Helmet's for track and auto
I want to buy a helment for autocross and hopefully a track day
I dont want to spend a ton of coin. Looking at something like this
NEW SNELL HJC CL-16 FULL MOTORCYCLE HELMET MATTE MD | eBay
This may be a dumb Q but does it matter that it is motorcycle helment, they seem to be cheaper. I figure if the Snell date is right I should be good??

http://www.saferacer.com is where i bought mine from.
i'd recommend sa2010.
the 2005's are probably still usable at most tracks, but the 2010 will last you 5 more years.
I have this
in a sa 2005 model (bought it a few years back)
The most important thing is fit.
If you don't know your size, you should really hit up a motorcycle shop first and see how brands run and fit on your head before ordering online if you don't have a shop near by that sells good helmets. Hard to find anything but dirt or 'harley' style helemts around here, and SA, forget it.

I have the G-Force Pro Eliminator.
G-FORCE Products - Pro Eliminator Helmet
It's sa2005, and it is probably one of the best track helmets I've owned. It's HANS compatible, and rather comfortable in 105F weather.
Buy an sa2010 helmet, and don't skimp. Get one with pre-drilled HANS mounts for down the road when you need it.
