About Taylor Barton
My name is Taylor Barton and I was bullied as a boy in elementary school for my small size; my clothing; and my “squeaky voice.” After years of being picked on, called derogatory names and not fitting in, I snapped and became the aggressor, engaging in anti-social behavior until I hit rock bottom. Humiliated and hurt, I vowed to myself that if I was ever in a position to help others combat the terrors of bullying, I would. I finished high school early to avoid the bullying environment and turned my energy to racing, a passion of mine since childhood.
In 2005 I founded Barton Racing and moved up to the premier division at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Bullring, racing a Super Late Model in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series where I won the Rookie of the Year award. In 2009 I placed first twice and was in the top 5 for the remaining NASCAR races, putting me in the top 3 overall and 3rd in point standings for 2009. In 2010, I raced in the NASCAR K&N Pro-Series west division. I am currently working on racing and focusing my free time on helping young people know they aren’t alone and together we can work to combat bullying.
