Serpent's Barry Baker

Barry “The Fabulous One” Baker is a legendary American racer known for his accomplishments on the track and his skills tuning a car. Often very opinionated about all things in racing, he also has the cred to back it up, and has multiple ROAR National titles to his name along with a string of Reedy International Touring Car Race of Champions titles. He TQ’d and nearly won the 2002 IFMAR Championship in South Africa for touring cars, only to finish in second place—an amazing accomplishment for anyone else, but something that still haunts him. Now running for Serpent, we got a chance to ask him a few questions. Read on.
