MIDDLETOWN -- Richard "Dick" Hinshaw, 71, of Middletown, went to be with his Lord early Tuesday morning, March 23, 2010, surrounded by his loved ones.    He passed away at his home following a courageous battle with cancer.
He was born April 4, 1938, in New Castle, the son of Herschel and Eva (Van Demis) Hinshaw.    Dick was a retired employee of Avesta (formerly Ingersol) Steel in New Castle, retiring in 1996 after over 28 years of service.
He loved riding motorcycles.    He and his wife, Bonnie, traveled all across the United States at different times on their motorcycle.    He was a member of the Gold Wing Road Riders Association.    He also loved gardening, NASCAR, the Colts, riding around in his golf cart and spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
Dick was best known for his race driving and was a local legend for his racing.    He raced stock cars and figure-8 cars.    He was a crowd favorite at Muncie, Anderson, Winchester and Mount Lawn speedways.    He also raced at Whitewater and Eldora speedways.    He was among the top five drivers invited to participate in the Louisville, Ky. Invitational.    During his 33 years of competition, he won many events, including the National Crown Championship for Figure 8 cars in 1974.    He also was Point Champion three times for the Figure 8s and was ranked second overall in terms of all-time achievements.    Dick also ranked third for all-time wins at Mount Lawn and was inducted into the Mount Lawn Hall of Fame in 2008.    During his racing career, which spanned from 1960-1993, he also raced stock cars in the prestigious ASA (American Speed Association) series.    He retired from figure-8 competition in 1985.
He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Bonnie (Burroughs) Hinshaw, whom he married June 21, 1958; one daughter, Rita (husband, Bobby) Westrater of Middletown; two sons, Randy Hinshaw of Fort Wayne and Rick (wife, Lea) Hinshaw of Oaklandon; nine grandchildren, Ricky (wife, April) Hinshaw of Ossian, Ryan (companion, Jessica) Hinshaw of Indianapolis, Shan (wife, Erica) Willis of Scotts Air Force Base, Ill., Katie (fiance, A.J.)
