Default Is it true about Barry Baker

Watched episode 709 on www.rctvlive.com and heard them say that Barry Baker broke his hand at a race. Does anyone know if this actually happened or is it a bunch of bs? I know if I was racing at Barry's level I would be upset if I did not do well or if someone took me out. Barry Baker still got it.

his hand impacted a part of the drivers stand that was made out of some very study wood.

I did the same thing on my refrigerator one time. Not my proudest moment. Everyone has a savage inside.

oh, so he got pissed and punched the driver's stand? Was he mad at himself or someone else or did he catch his wife touching another man?

Who can argue this fact about Barry? He's won two ROAR National titles this year! One on carpet and one on asphalt!

APACHE!

And one HE** of a Race Director/Announcer!


Barry is one of my alltime favorites! As much as I hate to say it, Barry's hand breaking changed him....for the good!

Look at what he has done since....Alot of ppl had all but written him off what 2 years ago! Then he comes back and wins both TC Nationals in the same year.

If people learn from mistakes and grow we must respect them.
