Tim Richmond: ESPN's 30 For 30 Will Spotlight His Career
The late NASCAR driver Tim Richmond will be the latest subject of ESPN's 30 for 30 series Tuesday night.
In a documentary titled "To the Limit", Richmond's life--and death--will be chronicled. While it has never been confirmed, it is widely known that Richmond died because of AIDS in 1989 at the age of 34.
He was known for his aggressive driving on the track and his hard living off of it, which ultimately caught up to him.
Richmond had his best season in 1986, when he won seven races and finished third in the Winston Cup points race.
But he became ill soon after and left racing at the start of the 1987 season, only to return a few months later to win at Pocono.
He completely withdrew from racing in 1998 and lived his final days as a recluse.
