Storyline

Natural. Rock star. Outsider. In the 1980s, race car driver 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. Nevertheless, it was Richmond's on-track performances that ended up drawing comparisons to racing legends. And in 1986, when he won seven NASCAR races and finished third in the Winston Cup series points race, some believed he was on the verge of stardom. But soon his freewheeling lifestyle caught up to him. He unexpectedly withdrew from the NASCAR racing circuit, reportedly suffering from double pneumonia. In reality, the diagnosis was much more dire: He had AIDS. Richmond returned to the track in 1987, but he was gone from the sport by the next year as his health deteriorated.

No one is invincible

This is a very well done documentary about on of the best talents to turn a wheel. It is also a very sad cautionary tail. Despite what another reviewer has complained about, 30 on 30 did talk about Tim's sex life but i think that review wanted to hear that Tim was gay so he can continue to delude himself that heterosexual sex can't transmit HIV. Nearly 20 years on we know better, and if you pay attention although no one comes right out and says it Tim was a total hound. His sister pretty much summed it up and she loved him deeply. Gone fare too soon, they should have done a movie about him instead of twisting his life into Days of Thunder.
