A1A was first opened by Gary Geving in 1990. He built a loyal customer following with his quality of work and attention to customer service. Gary hired Joe (Jojo) Helberg at the young age of 13 to sweep the shop and help with other small tasks. 13 years later, Gary retired and sold A1A to a longtime employee and close friend family friend, Joe. Joe has maintained Gary’s commitment to friendly customer service and upheld the highest standards of quality.
Joe Helberg, known by many as Jojo, has spent over 15 years custom building his own award-winning sprint cars. Joe has won countless championships and races in his custom-built cars and holds a world record for the fastest half-mile lap ever turned. He and his team at A1A are all passionate about cars and racing, and this passion is evident in all of their work.
