That was one of a series-high seven races that Richmond would win that year, all in a 17- race stretch. Richmond's reputation wasn't limited to the racetrack. He was a well-liked guy know for his larger than life personality, charisma, and outgoing character. He had a passion and enthusiasm for racing and his love of the sport came with little concern about appearances or the perception of others. As Richmond liked to say, "I don't give a shit, I don't take any shit, I'm not in the shit business." Timothy Lee Richmond died on August 13, 1989, from Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). He was 34 years old.
