Scott Baker (April 30, 1957, Holland, Michigan – June 23, 2000, Toledo, Ohio) was a second-generation racecar driver.

He raced in various late-model series as well as the ARCA circuit. He won five late-model feature races in 1995. When he was not racing, he ran his own business, Baker Metal Products.

In June 2000 at Toledo Speedway, he was running in eighth position in an ARCA race when his car lost control on the front straightaway and spun backwards into a tire barrier. Baker did not survive the crash. He was 43 years old.
