Tom "Tiger Tom" Baldwin (14 March 1947 - 19 August 2004) was a NASCAR Modified race driver. He competed for 40 seasons, winning 6 modified races as well as numerous other races. His 11 wins at Riverhead Raceway spanned from 30 June 1978 to 6 June 1992. He was given the "Most Popular Driver" award on the Modified tour of 2003. He died in an accident on lap 10 of the New England Dodge Dealers 150 at the Thompson International Speedway on 19 August 2004. He spun into the infield to miss another competitor's car and struck a concrete block protecting a light pole on the drivers side of the car.

He had a daughter, Tammy, and a son, Tommy Baldwin, Jr., who was a crew chief and now a car owner in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

A 77-lap memorial race held at Riverhead Raceway and a memorial golf outing are run in his honour.
