“I moved here from California last year and put a full time all out effort to win the Must See championship,” Helberg said. “The level of competition and caliber of teams in Must See is the best and as tough as it gets, I’m really happy especially for my team and my family. I have to thank my dad and my crew, I had a lot of people pulling for me and that made a difference. It was hard work and a lot of fun”.
Helberg, who recently moved his operation to Moorseville, N.C., will also be trying to claim a $50,000 bonus Must See Racing will be offering. The Xtreme Speed Challenge at Winchester May 19 will be the first leg of “The Triple Crown”. If any driver can win the Xtreme Speed Challenge, the May 22 Must See Racing 60 at Anderson Speedway, and the 65th Pay Less Little 500 May 25, the driver will claim the $50,000 bonus.
The bonus has caught Helberg’s attention, but he insists on staying the course.
“I’m definitely going for it,” said Helberg. “I’m taking it one race at a time. I’m excited about Winchester. As long as I can keep the tires on the car, I’ve got a good shot. I’m not going for speed at Winchester this year. I’m gonna be more conservative. But, all my cards are going towards winning Winchester. If I can do that I got a good shot at Anderson because I’ve won there before and have a good set up. If I get that far, we’ll see what happens with the Little 500.”
If his early 2012 success is any indication, Helberg might have a good shot at winning the bonus. Helberg has already won at Mobile Int’l Speedway on March 24. His goal towards staking claim to the $50,000 bonus begins with the Xtreme Speed Challenge May 19 at Winchester Speedway.
