He managed to lead only six laps out of 7,901 - the equivalent of 8,822.8 miles (14,198.9 km). 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. His only "top five" finish was at the 1976 Richmond 400 at Richmond Fairgrounds Raceway. Bivins raced from the age of 31 to the age of 33 - making him a late-bloomer by today's NASCAR standards.
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. In 2010, Bivins has resumed some semblance of a stock car racing career.
