Worried how this may effect my probation?

Unless you are charged with reckless driving or some other misdemeanor because of the excessive speed then no. Speeding is considered quasi-criminal and not a misdemeanor or felony. Make sure you take care of the ticket because failure to appear could cause a bigger problem.

Criminal Defense Attorney
You should contact an attorney familiar with the jurisdiction in which your case is scheduled. Nevertheless, in many jurisdictions only a criminal conviction(not a traffic infraction) will result in a probation violation. Beware that in some jurisdictions(i.e. Virginia) a speeding ticket could be charged as reckless driving(a criminal charge) if the speed is excessive.
