Eric Sturrock (my new buddy  Cheesy) brought it to my attention that Nascarnow is doing a piece on Tim Richmond today at 5 and 1am. For those of you younger fans that may not have gotten to know much about him, I suggest doing whatever it takes to watch.

Also, this was a fairly good read:

He died 20 yrs ago today

Is this ture, Riki Rachtman showed a poster with a bunch of NASCAR Drivers(Bill Elliott, Richard Petty, Dale Sr., etc.) and Rachtman says that Richmond is "hanging out" in the poster. Is that true? lol Howed he get away with that, and whos the poor guy in front of him?

Yup. IIRC, it was a practical joke amongst Richmond and the other drivers to see if they could get away with it (Which they did). The driver in front of him is Neil Bonnett.

It is NOT the handle of his cane. There is a reason why they call the 1987 Winston poster "the dick poster". After they realized what Tim did they made new posters and airbrushed that out.

Third picture up from the bottom of the page.

Also, given the position of his hands, I buy the cane theory.

Also, check this post out from yahoo! (it supports the cane):

Hmm, hard to tell, although the idea of him doing it while standing between Morgan Shepherd and Darrell Waltrip is funny as hell.

Here's a bigger version http://cgi.ebay.com/1987-WINSTON-TIM-RICHMOND-UNCENSORED-POSTER-EARNHARDT_W0QQitemZ370274597406QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_SM_Fan_Shop?hash=item563615fa1e#ht_500wt_1182

If you save it and zoom in, it honestly looks like Neil Bonnet's right ear to me.  It's in the right place compared to his left one.

Heres the deal Ive asked 2 drivers personally that were in the photo both said He had his cane in his hand at the time of the picture, he was having a hard time walking and needed it, the rest of what you hear is just BS, the reason they airbrushed it is because idiots were dumb enough to believe it
