“I’d like to take a minute to honor the life of Mike Helmann,” Fireball Camaro said in a Facebook post. “Today is a tough day for the Street Outlaws family. Mike was not only a fantastic producer, but a great friend to myself, and (the) Fireball crew. He was always there to put a positive twist on anything negative and knew how to get your spirits up if you were down.

“I’m blessed to have been able to spend the last few years with him as we took this crazy journey together. Love you, Mikey!! (You’re) gonna be missed so much!! Rest easy buddy!!”

Several Street Outlaws members have made tribute posts to Helmann. His death comes less than a week after Street Outlaws driver Ryan Fellows was killed in an accident near Las Vegas.

Fellows was competing in a race on Street Outlaws: Fastest in America hosted by Memphis Street Outlaws leader Jonathan “JJ DaBoss” Day. Towards the end of the race, he lost control of his vehicle.

The car burst into flames. Unfortunately, the crew was not able to get to Fellows in time to remove him from the car.

“They always take the good ones early, it’s a rough day out here today at (the) Street Outlaws No Prep Kings, Mike supported everyone but I feel like he was my biggest one,” Justin Swanstrom said in a Facebook post. “Man always made sure everyone was good. Made sure to tell me what I (was) doing right and wrong, always came over to see Cheyenne Alexx, and (took) time to have a snack break!

“I met him a few years ago and we had become pretty cool over the last two seasons. I’m gonna miss him being out here, even though he wasn’t my producer. He made sure I was good and on track to make good TV. Please if you come out and some drivers seem a little off, please don’t get mad as it’s pretty rough out here. I only knew the guy for 4 years. Some (have known) him since the beginning of the show. RIP BUDDY. We will go grab that drink soon!”
