    the photos of him coming out of the car at Darlington signaled the begining

    of the end of him being competitive...

    that & the 81 Dodge Magnum...what a rocketship those were..

    Time & circumstance my friend....

    The way nascar handled the situation concerning his illness, was wrong.
    Not to take sides or defend NASCAR, because I can't stand them, but it was the 80's. AIDS was the new epidemic and nobody knew exactly what to do with it at that time, I personally don't think the media or the government is handling it right now, but thats another story. As far as Tim changing the stats on Petty, the only thing he may have altered was the total wins, but not championships. He may have caused Dale to win a few less and No I don't think RCR had NASCAR in their pocket back then. Tim was an outstanding talent and I miss him and often ponder the, "what might have been's" the same way I think of Duayne Hommel. In Tim's case as well as some others I look at it as a reminder of how important all the choices we make in life can and do effect our future... Oh yeah, I'm 40 and I remember watching him race very well.

    I sure miss him! I don't think Earnhardt or Petty would have the number of championships they have had he lived on.
    I agree Dale wouldn't of hit 7 titles however Petty's last title was in 1979 2 years before Tim drove Cup cars

    It will be interesting to see how Nascar/espn will handle his story. He certainly had away with the ladies, saw him at Martinsville in the old milwalkee car and he must have had 200 women following him after the race. It was a mob. He was not as responsible as he should have been even after he was diagnossed with aids. I agree it was adifferent time and all parties envolved wasn't sure how to deal with his sickness. I have a clock made from one of the Winston posters where he exposed himself behind Neil Bonnets ear, the Cole Trickle character on days of thunder was based on his example, He raced hard and lived even harder and it caught up with him. He reminded me of a modern day Curtis Turner. Such a loss, he was one of the best drivers though and would have won his share.
