Walter Ballard (born January 12, 1933) is a former NASCAR Winston Cup driver from Houston, Texas.

He made a single Grand National start in 1966 and did not return to the series until 1971 when he ran a nearly full season in a car owned by his father, capturing 11 top tens on his way to Rookie of the Year honors and a tenth-place finish in points.[1] The next season was even better, capturing 7 top tens and a 6th-place finish in points. He continued full-time with the team until 1975. He then participated part-time in the 1976 and 1977 seasons and then retired from NASCAR. His best Cup finish was a 3rd in the 1971 Space City 300 at Meyer Speedway in Houston, Texas. In 1979 Ballard started an automotive repair business with his sons Daniel, Stoney and Clint.

In November 2005 he retired and currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina with his wife Katie.[citation needed]
