Benny Parsons
Person

Born:  July 12, 1941
Died:  January 16, 2007
Hometown:  Ellerbe, North Carolina

"BP," as he was known, was a former NASCAR Grand National/Winston Cup driver between 1969 and 1988.  He retired with one Winston Cup Championship and 21 wins, including the 1975 Daytona 500.

His last job was as a NASCAR racing commentator for NBC and TNT.

In July of 2006 he was diagnosed with cancer in his left lung.  He underwent both chemotherpy and radiation treatments, eventually declared cancer-free in October.  However, the treatments left him without the use of his left lung.  He was hospitalized again in December 2006 when a blood clot was found in his right lung.  He was placed in an induced coma.  He died on January 16th, 2007 in Charlotte, North Carolina.


1968 ARCA Racing Series Champion
1969 ARCA Racing Series Champion
1973 NASCAR Winston Cup Champion
1975 Daytona 500 Winner
First NASCAR Winston Cup driver to qualify over 200 mph (200.176 at the 1982 Winston 500)
Named one of NASCAR's 50 Greatest Drivers

Darrell Waltrip once said of him that, "Benny Parsons was the kindest, sweetest, most considerate person I have ever known.  He was almost too nice to be a race car driver, and I say that as a compliment."
