In 2015 Ricky Baker joined the ARCA Midwest Tour for the first time as a Touring Star. Baker impressed in his first year with the Tour, claiming a victory at Illiana Motor Speedway in the Calypso Chicagoland Showdown. The Plainfield, IL native put on the most miles of any driver in the series to make each and every event throughout 2015. Baker challenged Austin Nason until the final event in the fight for the Rookie of the Year honors, but fell short finishing just behind Nason in the point standings. The two-time Grundy County Speedway champion returns as a Touring Star for the 2016 season.
