Jo Jo Helberg Wins Another One

WINCHESTER, Ind. — Continuing his recent hot streak, Jo Jo Helberg earned his fourth consecutive sprint car victory and second straight with the King of the Wing Sprint Car Shoot Out at Winchester Speedway on Friday.

In a daring move, Helberg passed Troy DeCaire on the final lap to earn the victory with Kyle Edwards finishing in third position. Fourth went to five-time Auto Value Bumper to Bumper Super Sprints Champion Jason Blonde with Aaron Pierce rounding out the top five.

“I didn’t know about being conservative or running hard with 40 laps at Winchester. When the opportunities came, I took them,” said Helberg. “I thought the lead would be the safest place to be. Troy (DeCaire) stuck a nose underneath me one time, and gave me a wakeup call to pick it up. When he made that last move, I was caught in lapped traffic. Unfortunately I got held up and fell to second and knew I had it run it wide open to win. I was going to make the pass or hit the fence and was willing to take that chance. I really wanted to win at Winchester. We are going to work on the car tonight and get ready for Grundy County.”

Helberg bested the 20-car field with a quick time of 13.926 seconds at 135.379 mph.
