Terry Bivins is a retired NASCAR Winston Cup Series driver whose career spanned from 1975 to 1977.[1]


He managed to lead only six laps out of 7,901 - the equivalent of 8,822.8 miles (14,198.9 km).[1] For starting an average of 20th place and finishing an average of 17th, Bivins earned a grand total of $61,725 in total prize winnings.[1] His only "top five" finish was at the 1976 Richmond 400 at Richmond Fairgrounds Raceway.[1] Bivins raced from the age of 31 to the age of 33 - making him a late-bloomer by today's NASCAR standards.[1]

After retiring from NASCAR, Bivins went on to start his own construction company and drove a limited schedule for the ASA before putting a hiatus to his stock car career in 1980.[2] In 2010, Bivins has resumed some semblance of a stock car racing career.[2]
