Herring Burl "H. B." Bailey (November 15, 1936 – April 17, 2003) was a NASCAR driver. He raced his #36 Pontiac part-time as an independent driver in the Grand National/Winston Cup series from 1962 to 1993 making 85 races over his career.

Although he never ran a full schedule, he still had his share of fans. He had the distinction of being the first driver to take a qualifying lap for the inaugural Brickyard 400 in 1994.

Bailey said he began racing at Playland Park, near Houston, in 1954. He won the track championship there in 1959. Coincidentally A.J. Foyt started his career in 1953 at Playland Park.

Darlington Raceway was one of the goateed driver's favorite venues and he was a three-time member of the UNOCAL/Darlington Record Club at the famed South Carolina oval. Bailey made his final start in the 1993 Southern 500 at Darlington.

In the 1972 NASCAR Grand American division, Bailey won the pole for the opener at Daytona International Speedway, won at Nashville and finished second in the national championship standings to Wayne Andrews.

He died of heart failure on April 17, 2003. When he died, Richard Petty said "Our sport was built by people like H.B. Bailey", who raced alongside Bailey for virtually his entire career. "We all did things the same way in those days – we drove ourselves to the race track, we worked hard when we got there, we raced hard and then we drove home. "H.B. was a racer through and through, and the sport is better off because he was a part of it. We will miss him."

Bailey's son and mechanic on his cars, Joe Dan, later was hired as an engineer for various NASCAR teams, most notably with Bob Whitcomb, where he won the 1990 Daytona 500, and later Richard Childress Racing, where the 1993 and 1994 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championships were won in the #3 car. He is now a senior engineer for Toyota Racing Development.
