There's not a lot of Tim Richmond stuff out there. His career was tragically brief, and ended before the explosive growth of NASCAR's fan base. He never won a championship. But his was a remarkable story, and in 2002, Tim Richmond was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame.

My webhost won't allow me to code in the name of the site that sounds like Ammazon, but if you go there and search "Tim Richmond", you'll find David Poole's book Tim Richmond: The Fast Life and Remarkable Times of NASCAR's Top Gun, and a DVD produced by ESPN in 2010 called Tim Richmond: To The Limit. Both are excellent studies of the man.

The nav links to the left (and at the bottom of this page) are simply articles I found around the Web and re-coded. They're archived here not only to reduce the redundancy that comes from a web search, but moreover as a hedge against the original webpages disappearing— think of them as my virtual scrapbook of netpaper clippings.

Meanwhile, the foremost intent of this page is just to show my little Tim Richmond cars.

Note: In July 1998, a large group of devoted fans petitioned to have Tim Richmond honored at Pocono, for the 11th anniversary of Tim's emotional comeback win there. NASCAR, the networks, and track owner Joe Mattioli refused to honor Tim in any way. In response, the fans hired a plane to fly a banner during the Daytona 500 in 1999. Tom Higgin's story refers to a similar banner, flown eight years later.
