Today In NASCAR History

1953: Buck Baker surges to victory in the season finale at Lakewood Speedway outside of Atlanta as Herb Thomas drives home 14th to become the first two-time NASCAR Grand National (now Sprint Cup) series champion. Baker led 22 of the 100 laps at the mile-long dirt track, edging runner-up Fonty Flock and third-place Lee Petty. Both Baker and Thomas will be honored next year as inductees into the 2013 class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
