Bob Pressley (November 15, 1932 - April 27, 2004) was a NASCAR driver from Asheville, NC. He competed in six Nationwide Series events in his career, earning one top-ten. He was also the father of Robert Pressley.

Pressley's Busch (now Nationwide Series) debut came in 1982, when he competed at Martinsville. Starting positions in all of the races he competed in that year are unknown, but Pressley completed all but nine laps in route to a solid 17th place finish there. But Pressley fell off the next few races, finishing 21st and 23rd in small fields at Hickory and finishing 15th at his home track in Asheville. But Pressley rebounded nicely when he returned to Martinsvile in the fall, completing all but one lap in route to a career-best 5th place effort.

Pressley's final race came in 1986, when he returned to Hickory. Starting 15th in the twenty-six car field, Pressley completed a little more than half of the race before an engine failure doomed him to 19th.
