Benny Parsons - Victim of LC


Recommended Posts

Not sure how many of you here are race fans but thought some of you might be. While watching the race a couple of weeks ago, it was announced that long time driver, turned announcer, Benny Parsons has been diagnosed with lung cancer and is now undergoing treatment. He is still working but last week, he was having some major problems with his voice while announcing the race at Watkins Glen. I know that we'll all be keeping him in our thoughts and prayers. I'm going to send him an email and tell him about our group. Maybe he'll join in!

Benny Parsons In Broadcast Booth For Race

Posted: 8/8/2006 11:00:08 AM

Benny Parsons was back in the NBC broadcast booth for the NASCAR race in Indianapolis Sunday, one week after announcing that he's battling lung cancer.

Parsons says he wants everyone to know that he feels good and he's not going anywhere. The 65-year-old Parsons, the 1973 NASCAR champion, was diagnosed with cancer in his left lung and began treatment last Wednesday.

The man affectionately known as "BP" said he has been assured by his doctors that this challenge is "winnable."
