    That's Tim Richmond.... If I was robbing a bank and needed a getaway driver it would have been Tim Richmond without a doubt.

    Cole Trickle (Tom Cruise) in Days of Thunder was loosely based on Tim Richmond and his relationship with crew chief Harry Hyde, played by Robert Duvall and called Harry Hogge in the movie.

    Richmond was probably the most naturally talented driver in that picture. If it had wheels Richmond could drive it. Richmond was one of the first drivers to come from Open Wheel to drive the Taxi Cabs and paved the way for others like Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart and Danica Patrick to follow.

    Richmond lived on a sailboat and had a pet alligator, which is where Miami Vice got the idea for Crockett in the TV show.

    Richmond would also screw anything that walked, and he usually had a line of pit lizards just waiting their turn. He died of AID's not long after that picture was taken.

    I never met anyone that loved being a race car driver more then Richmond. On Saturday night before the race he would usually stroll through the spectator motor homes chatting to anyone that would listen and just happy to be where he was. Most professional athletes tolerate fan's, but Richmond truly loved them.
