Sunday 13th August 1989
NASCAR Winston Cup driver, Tim Richmmond (34) died of complications from AIDS. Although his NASCAR career lasted just seven years, Richmond’s on-track performances made an impression on the competition. In 1986, the flamboyant driver won seven races, more than any other driver, and finished a career-high third in the NASCAR Winston Cup points race. Richmond started just eight races in 1987, winning two races, one pole position, tallying three top-five and four top-10 finishes.
