The Baker Family will host a special night of races Sunday night in remembrance of Tom Baker. Tom recently lost his battle with cancer. Tom was an avid race car fan and also a car owner. Tom was a very good family man and had recently married his long time sweetheart Helen Bucholz. Tom would help out anyone that needed it, either with parts or just his time. The first car Tom owned was a Hobbystock driven by his older brother Chuck. After Chuck’s passing, Tom’s nephew Matt Baker started running the #1 in the Sport Compact division in honor of his uncle Chuck. Tom was very proud of this. Tom also put together a race team of Sportmods which were driven by Kirk Beatty and Rich Headed. Tom will sure be missed by all of his family and many friends. On behalf of Tom’s family they would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and support at this time.
We will be running the Quick Pick Big Wheel Racing Series and Ditzy the Clown will be on hand doing all her fun and wacky activities for the kids.
