Buzz Barton was from Tampa, Florida. He raced Midgets and ran at Indy in 1952 and 1953 but failed to qualify both times.

He would run the State Fair as a sprint car and local shows as a super modified.  He was a rather big guy to see in a sprint car and his driving style meant that he ran the low groove.
