Tim Richmond, one of the greats...
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.
