I had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times and one time when him and his wife gave me some tickets to a race and I must say he was a nice guy and easy to talk to.....He also gave me a copy of one of his books.

Tim Richmond: The Fast Life and Remarkable Times of NASCAR's Top Gun

This book gave me a glimps into the past of NASCAR that i was too young to remember and I tell ya what the book is worth a read
