According to a Facebook post, Street Outlaws No Prep Kings star Cody “Shake N Bake” Baker has retired from drag racing. He called the decision “for now.”
Baker has one Street Outlaws No Prep Kings win in his career. It is not clear how long he will be retired.
“This post is a tough one,” Baker said in the post. “I have dedicated mine and my families life the past 12-13 years to racing. The last 5 of it to the Street Outlaws franchise of shows. I have lived most peoples dreams to be able to race on this level. I have seen things that a lot of people won’t get to see in a lifetime traveling the country with family and friends racing. With that being said, I have decided that I am going to retire from drag racing for now. I have 2 daughters who are starting sports and it’s their time to have my attention and support. My business is continuing to grow and I also have employees that rely on the companies success.
“My wife Kayli Baker has taken up the slack at home for many years while I’ve been gone and it’s time for her to have my help. My mom and Dad have been there from day 1 and are ready to relax a little. I’ve put racing first for a long time and now it’s time to do something else. I can’t thank all my sponsors for sticking with me so long enough. To all my friends who have gone an helped us a long the way, thank you. Many of you spent money, missed work and so much more for our team. There will always be 1 thing no one can take away from us and that’s we were the first blower car of any kind to win an invitational. Thank you to all the fans who have supported us as well along the way! Street Outlaws and No Prep Kings is an awesome sport and I am excited to see how it continues to grow!”
Baker’s retirement comes weeks before the new Street Outlaws No Prep Kings begins in June.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
