Vic Parsons (born on November 29, 1939) is a retired NASCAR driver from Willowdale, Ontario, Canada (a suburb of Toronto).[1] He competed in nineteen Winston Cup Series events in his career with seven top-tens.[1]

Cup career[edit]

Parsons made his debut in 1972, making the show at North Wilkesboro Speedway with a 19th place qualifying effort.[1] Parsons then survived the tough short track and ended up with a top-10 in his first career race-9th.[1]

Parsons stepped it up to eighteen races in 1973, when he finished 30th in the points standings.[1] Driving for car owner, George Seifer, Parsons recorded an unprecedented six top-tens.[1] That included a career best 7th place in the July race at Daytona.[1] The other top-tens were a trio of ninths and a duo of tenths.[1] However, the news was not all good for Parsons.[1] Even with six top-tens, Parsons' team struggled to finish races.[1] In fact, in eighteen starts, Parsons' team only finished seven of them.[1] This would lead to Parsons not being re-hired for the 1974 season and his permanent departure from the NASCAR scene.
