Thank you for letting me be your biggest fan in your racing career. You had a big personality, and an even bigger heart. From matching our flannels, to giving the famous thumbs up before your races, these are sweet memories I will always cherish with you. You were a kid at heart and always made it easy to smile.

“This doesn’t seem real and I’m struggling to process this. Thank you for being a great friend. My heart is hurting so much😞 So many prayers to the sweet Baker family and mobile home workers. Fly high, T-Rev, until we meet again.”

According to WFLA, he was killed on I-75 near Tampa, Florida as he stepped outside of his truck as multiple cars collided. Baker was killed at the scene.

Others were injured. However, Baker was the only fatality.
