View Full Version : Thinking about Benny Parsons

01-05-2007, 03:29 PM
Just read an article that Benny Parsons (former NASCAR driver & current broadcast analyst for those of you unfamiliar with him) is in the intensive care unit in a NC hospital. He was diagnosed with lung cancer in '06 and is now apparently cancer free, but the chemo and radiation completely destroyed one of his lungs. Given that he is in the hospital in ICU, I sure hope that is not a sign of sad things to come. I've never met Benny, but I've always enjoyed his TV coverage and he seems like a genuinely good person. I'm just wishing him and his family all the best in the days to come.

Here, here, hope for the best for Benny. Scary situation I'm all too familiar with.

Benny was the 1973 Winston Cup winner. If he does not come back, a race without his voice in the back ground won't be the same. Get well big guy!

I watched NASCAR as a child and always loved Benny. Best wishes!
