Welcome to Buck Baker’s Seat Time Racing School…

Share Our Need for Speed! The Racing School that was Built for You!

 

“I don’t know if I’d be where I am if it wasn’t for Buck and his racing school”, Jeff Gordon

Buck Baker’s Seat Time Racing School was founded in 1980 by NASCAR’s first back to back champion Buck Baker.  Our instructors, who have a combined 100+ years of instructing experience, were all trained by Buck or his son Daytona 500 champion and NASCAR legend Buddy Baker.  The training you will receive at Buck Baker’s Seat Time Racing School has a direct lineage to NASCAR Hall of Famer Buck and to one of the hardest chargers in NASCAR history, Buddy.

The list of of Buck Baker’s Seat Time Racing School graduates read like a Who’s Who of the NASCAR world.  In addition to NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon, graduates include: NASCAR champions Tony Stewart and Bobby Allison, NASCAR Chase drivers Austin Dilion and Ryan Newman, Southern 500 champion Ricky Craven, Indy Car legend Danny Sullivan and many, many more.  Buck Baker’s Seat Time Racing School graduates have won a combined 8 NASCAR Championships, led 100,000 laps, and have won almost 300 NASCAR races.  These statistics do not even include the XFINITY series or the Camping World Truck Series.

Our race car driving programs are custom tailored for all racing enthusiast’s needs and budgets.  Our curriculum ranges from introductory packages for race fans and adrenaline junkies to intense one on one driver training for racers who want to take their skills to the next level.

Each of our instructor’s and staff member’s lives are dedicated to Buck Baker’s Seat Time Racing School.  We are totally committed to providing a safe, fun and professional experience for all of our race driving students, no matter their skill level.  The smiles of our students, when they emerge from their race car, is what Buck Baker’s Seat Time Racing School is all about!

“Before you choose where to learn to drive a race car on an official race track, either in Charlotte or Atlanta, or any other track, do your homework.  There are plenty of other driving schools offering “race car driving experiences”, but only Seat Time American Racing School offers you a real RACING SCHOOL atmosphere and will teach you everything that you will need to advance to the next level at “Unbeatable Prices”. Take a look around and see what you are getting for your money, then give Buck Baker’s Seat Time Racing School a call.  We’ll get your motor running!”

See you at the Race Track!

My wife LOVED her Hot Lap ride along.  We’ll see you guys again on July 15!! We cant wait.”

“What a feeling it was to get the chance to ride shotgun in a race car and on one the most popular NASCAR tracks. Adrenaline rush! My wonderful wife bought me this experience as a late birthday present and what an awesome gift to give. Every race fan needs to experience this ride and meet the staff!  The staff did not treat it like a job.  They were having just as much fun as the customers! Awesome job guys! Be back In August!”

Darryl G. – April 5, 2017:

“I’ve attended numerous road course and NASCAR driving schools, let me say NO ONE ELSE COMPARES to you guys.  Your staff is laid back but professional.   i was given much more freedom on the track compared to your competitors and your packages gave me more laps for less money.  My wife still is smiling a week later after her Hot Lap ride.  You guys ROCK!!”

“Last Saturday at Charlotte was my 2nd session with Seat Time Racing School.  Your company’s prices are very competitive, the program is well organized and the Seat Time employees provide a fun and friendly atmosphere.  I certainly am going to recommend Seat Time to anyone looking to enjoy some track time.  Seat Time Racing School is great!!  I felt safe and comfortable driving at 160+mph!”
