Dave Helm was among the most humble, gentle, men that I encountered in a lifetime of racing associations. His passing in 2007 left a void in our sport that can never be filled. Dave was a graduate of Selma High School, and a veteran of the United States NAVY. In 1989, Helm established his famous Selma Shell Racing team. The #11 was vital to the Central Valley’s reputation as a hotbed for Sprint Cars. Some of the drivers that wheeled Helm’s ultra-fast entries included Steve Kent, Kerry Madsen, Paul McMahan, Tim Shaffer, Lucas Wolfe, and the late Greg Hodnett. His impeccable equipment established itself as a championship contender in California before branching out to become a respected World of Outlaws traveling team. – Bobby Gerould
"I raced against his cars every Saturday night in Hanford, Calif. He was just one of those guys who would help anybody. He was a friendly individual. There wasn't a guy in the pit area that could say they had a problem with Dave Helm.” – Paul McMahan
