The Buck Baker Racing School stakes its claim as the first NASCAR-type school in the country, started in 1980 by former Sprint Cup champion Buck Baker, who has trained racing stars Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, and Ryan Newman. The school's masters of acceleration instruct motorpupils during informative classes before helping them strap on provided helmets and fire suits and climb into speedy chariots with buttered wheels. Friends and family are encouraged to attend driving and riding programs and take snapshots or fingerpaint the action.
