Tim Richmond Documentary Airs Tuesday Night on ESPN

Filed under:

In another of ESPN Film's Emmy-worthy installments of its documentary series "30 for 30," the network on Tuesday night gives us a moving and informative look at the life of former star NASCAR Cup Series driver Tim Richmond, who died in 1989 of complications from AID at the age of only 34.

Using the right blend of classic race footage and emotional interviews, the hour-long film gives an in-depth look at NASCAR's original rebel, the driver who gave Dale Earnhardt fits on track and puzzled the "Good Ol' Boy" garage, which wasn't sure what to make of this glam-kid from the Midwest.

As his former team owner Rick Hendrick and contemporaries such as Darrell Waltrip tell it, Richmond had more talent than he could harness. And Richmond enjoyed every bit of his success -- perhaps to a fault. The film, with emotional interviews from Richmond's sister, lets you decide.

This is a must-see for the massive legions of new NASCAR fans who started tuning into the sport only in the last decade. And it's sure to be an emotional trip down memory lane for those who remember Richmond's spunk, talent and personality.

It's interesting and compelling television whether you're a NASCAR fan or not.

The show begins at 8 p.m. (ET) Tuesday.

Report: Jeff Gordon's New Sponsorship Deal to Be Announced Wednesday

Filed under: , , ,

The AARP Foundation and Jeff Gordon will team up in 2011, with the charity arm of the retired persons organization becoming the primary sponsor on Gordon's No. 24 Chevrolet for most of the NASCAR Sprint Cup races to promote a major anti-hunger campaign, the Charlotte Observer reported Monday.

The paper reported that the campaign will be coordinated by the foundation and will eventually involve other companies.

The new deal, however, doesn't mean that fans will no longer see Gordon's longtime primary sponsors, Dupont and Pepsi, on his No. 24 Chevrolet. Those two powerhouse companies are expected to sponsor the races that AARP Foundation doesn't cover, the Observer said.

More details of the sponsorship are expected to be announced at a Wednesday news conference.

Dupont is one of NASCAR's longest-running and most dedicated sponsors.

If Dupont steps away completely from some of the 2011 races, it will be the first time since the company began sponsoring Gordon beginning with his very first race at Atlanta at the end of 1992.

Aragon World Superbike Test Day 3 Times

Testing concluded Friday for the World Superbike series at Aragon, with Max Biaggi finally beating the time set by Carlos Checa on the Althea Ducati on day 1. The WSBK champion had spent all three days working on the setup of the new Brembo brakes for his Alitalia Aprilia, before turning his attention to putting in a fast lap at the end of the test. Tom Sykes was 2nd fastest on day 3, though still not quite as fast as Checa had been on day 1, the Yorkshireman's 2011 spec ZX-10R showing a lot of promise for the new season. 

Leon Haslam finally put together a good lap on the BMW, the Bavarian factory pouring a lot of resources into working on the bike, their hard work paying off with an improvement of a full second off the 2010 runner up's previous lap time. Michel Fabrizio ended day 3 in 4th on the Alstare Suzuki, over a second off Biaggi's time.

Inmotec To Test MotoGP Bike At Valencia, On Grid For 2011?

The perilous state of the MotoGP grid has long been a topic of conversation among MotoGP fans. The grid threatened to drop to just 15 bikes earlier this year, but intervention from Dorna allowed Pramac to keep running two machines instead of dropping to one, and a sponsorship boost from Repsol helped Honda field three riders in its factory team, freeing up space at Gresini for Hiroshi Aoyama.

That still leaves the grid at just 17 bikes, however: six Hondas (three Repsols, two Gresinis and one LCR), six Ducatis (two Marlboro factory bikes, two Pramac bikes, one Aspar bike and one Cardion bike for Karel Abraham), four Yamahas (the factory squad and Tech 3) and a solitary Suzuki, Rizla having pulled out and the factory unwilling to run two machines. This is a long way from Dorna's ideal grid size of 24 bikes, but as long as the manufacturers control the technical rules, there is little hope that this might change any time soon.

Now It's Official: Toseland To BMW Italia Satellite Team

After the unofficial confirmation by Toseland himself at a charity event in the UK, comes the official confirmation from the BMW Italia team. James Toseland is to race alongside 2010 Superstock 1000 champion Ayrton Badovini in the satellite BMW Italia squad for 2011. The BMW Italia squad dominated the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup this season, and the operation is widely regarded as extremely effective. 

The team is to be very much a satellite effort, rather than a privateer outfit, with BMW Italia receiving engine and electronics support from the BMW Motorrad factory squad. With Badovini having dominated the Superstock class, there is no doubting the Italian's ability, and Toseland's long and varied experience should help the squad. After losing his factory ride with the Sterilgarda Yamaha team, the BMW Italia ride is a strong alternative for Toseland.

The official press release appears below:


BMW Motorrad Italia enters Superbike World Championship.

The winning team of the 2010 Superstock 1000 FIM Cup will debut with riders Ayrton Badovini and James Toseland.

More Confirmations: Sykes, Vermeulen And Lascorz At Kawasaki WSBK Squad

With the World Superbike paddock mostly reassembled at Aragon, for the three-day WSBK test there, the teams are taking the opportunity to make any announcements which they still have outstanding. Most of those - such as the announcement earlier that James Toseland would be riding for the BMW Italia team - are merely confirmation of news which had leaked out earlier, and the press release from the factory-supported Kawasaki WSBK and WSS teams was no exception.

In it, Kawasaki confirmed that they will be running three riders in the PBM Kawasaki squad, with Spaniard Joan Lascorz joining 2010 riders Tom Sykes and Chris Vermeulen for 2011. Lascorz was outstanding all year in World Supersport until his season-ending crash at Silverstone, but his early performance was good enough to earn promotion to World Superbikes.

Taking Lascorz' place in WSS is Australian rider Broc Parkes, who will be joined by another Spaniard, David Salom. Parkes had a disjointed season in WSBK and WSS in 2010, starting out with the Echo CRS team, then later switching to the Kawasaki squad in place of the injured Lascorz. Salom spent 2010 aboard a Triumph Daytona 675 triple, and was impressive enough to earn the Kawasaki ride.

Below is the text of the Kawasaki press release:
