Barry Baker wins at Big Fat Turkey Race

Barry Baker wins at Big Fat Turkey Race

This past weekend, the 10th annual Big Fat Turkey Race was held in Camarillo, California. With nice weather and with just over 130 entries and 18 heats, it was bound to make for a good day of racing. In the Modified Touring Car class the race for the win was on between veteran racer Barry Baker (Team Associated), Max Kuenning (Xray) and Randy Caster (Team Associated). In the opening two mains Kuenning scored a 3-2, Baker a 2-1, and Caster a 1-4. At the start of A3, Caster put a small gap between himself and the second and third spots of Baker and Kuenning. On lap 23, Baker got into some traffic and had to retire early due to a mechanical failure. With the points from A1 and A2, Randy needed a win in A3 to take the overall; but if Kuenning won, it would make for a 3-way tie for the win. At the finish line, Kuenning held on the for the win, forcing a three-way tie. Coming down to the driver’s fastest single main event as the tie breaker, Baker took the overall, beating Kuenning by only nine-tenths of a second.
