Tim Richmond lived his life the way he raced cars, wide open. Born into a wealthy family, Richmond was the antithesis of the Southern blue-collar, dirt-track racers who dominated NASCAR. He also was a flamboyant showman who basked in the attention of the media and fans, especially the attention of female admirers. But his freewheeling lifestyle soon caught up to him. He unexpectedly withdrew from the NASCAR racing circuit, reportedly suffering from double pneumonia. But in reality, he had been diagnosed with AIDS.
