Vic Parsons (born on November 29, 1939) is a retired NASCAR driver from Willowdale, Ontario, Canada (a suburb of Toronto). He competed in nineteen Winston Cup Series events in his career with seven top-tens.
Parsons made his debut in 1972, making the show at North Wilkesboro Speedway with a 19th place qualifying effort. Parsons then survived the tough short track and ended up with a top-10 in his first career race-9th.
Parsons stepped it up to eighteen races in 1973, when he finished 30th in the points standings. Driving for car owner, George Seifer, Parsons recorded an unprecedented six top-tens. That included a career best 7th place in the July race at Daytona. The other top-tens were a trio of ninths and a duo of tenths. However, the news was not all good for Parsons. Even with six top-tens, Parsons' team struggled to finish races. In fact, in eighteen starts, Parsons' team only finished seven of them. This would lead to Parsons not being re-hired for the 1974 season and his permanent departure from the NASCAR scene.
