NASCAR

Barrett made his NASCAR debut in the Busch Series at the [1992 Food City 250 at the age of 19, finishing 26th out of 29 cars following an accident on lap 39. He made a few limited starts with his own small team in the Busch Series for several years, finishing a career best 5th at the spring race at Atlanta in 1996 with Petro Express.

In 1999, he ran several races replacing Kerry Earnhart in the Channellock Chevy for Darwin Oordt but was replaced by Butch Miller after 15 races. He finished out the year for Steve Coulter, competing in the final three races of the season for him. 1999 was also the year he made his Winston Cup debut, at the Las Vegas 400 for Junie Donlavey, starting 42nd and finished 30th in the #90 Nestle Ford Taurus. After only qualifying for two of the several races he attempted with Donlavey that year, he joined Tri-Star Motorsports for the 2000 Daytona 500 with [http://www.sportcut.com sportcut.com] as a sponsor. He attempted the Bud Shootout qualifer for drivers who ran the fastest in 2nd-round-qualifying in 1999, but crashed, and did not make the 500. He attempted two Busch races for Jimmy Spencer and Washington-Ervin Motorsports respectively, but missed both races. He made one Busch start for Kevin Lepage at California Speedway, than made six starts in the #91 for Jody Looney, with Pabst Blue Ribbon and Bojangles' sponsoring. He had a best finish of 20th. He took full control of the team in 2002, making twelve starts with a best finish of 20th.

In 2003, he signed with Jack Roush's Busch Series team and won two poles, but sponsorship woes forced the team to close down. He returned to driving his own car, but only finished one race. In 2004, Barrett returned to Nextel Cup driving the #94 car owned by Dave Watson that Barrett managed and ran out of Barrett's shop. He failed to finish a race for the team, and also made failed attempts to qualify for Means-Jenkins Motorsports For 2005, Barrett attempted another part time Cup Schedule with the #92 Chevy for Front Row Motorsports. Barrett stopped running FRM's cars out of his shop, so Barrett revived his team, Stanton Barrett Motorsports, which formerly fielded his #91 AmericInn/Bojangles Chicken and Biscuits Chevys and later Fords. With cars purchased from Cal Wells #32 team, as well as the #92, his first race in the #95 was at Bristol qualifying 23rd with funding from a local Bristol sign company. The next race he got made, he did with absolutely no sponsor, he finished 42nd, due to an ill handling car at Dover where he wrecked out of turn four in the unsponsored SBM Chevy. The last race of the year he got in was the Phoenix race, which he got funding from CHEETAH Electrical Speed Systems, but blew a tire early, putting him out of the race. He started that year in the Busch Series in the #36 DCT Motorsports Chevy, was 20th in points, when he departed and signed for a one race deal with #40 car at FitzBradshaw Racing.

In 2006, Barrett attempted most of the races on the schedule, before sponsorship woes caused him to cut back on his schedule and run select Busch races. After running a limited partnership with Rick Ware, Ware provided a shop and crew for Barrett's Cup team and cars, changing from #95 to #30, and fielded cars for Barrett on a limited schedule, but due to poor preparation by Ware's crew, they failed to qualify all but their first attempt in New Hampshire, where the car last ran as the #95. He also ran seven races for MacDonald Motorsports in the Busch Series, his best finish 21st in the #72 TheRaceSpace.com (Barrett's own community website for NASCAR fans) Chevrolet at Nashville Superspeedway.

In 2007, he attempted to make the Daytona 500 in the #30 with funding help proposed by Ware, but didn't, an Barrett returned the Busch (now Nationwide) Series and field cars. In 2008, he will attempt to race four races in the #50 NOS Energy Drink Chevrolet for his own team, Stanton Barrett Motorsports, with help from Chris Lencheski's SKI Motorsports. He will also be the owner of the #31 Chevrolet in the Nationwide Series with funding from Grandstay.net, INTERUSH and NOS Energy Drink on a part time schedule for his father Stan Barrett at Montreal and Kenny Hendrick for an undisclosed amount of races. The #31 will only run at events the #30 will run as well.

In 2009, he will run full-time as part of new team 3G Racing (which he co-owns with Greg Beck) in the Indycar Series, while continuing to run select Nationwide races. [http://blogs.indystar.com/racingexpert/2008/09/sept_25_indycar_signings.html]
