    News that autopsy photographs of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes have appeared on the Internet has prompted Dale Earnhardt Inc. to plan a tribute to the singer during tonight's NASCAR race. Lopes, 30, a member of the Grammy-winning R&B trio TLC, was killed in a traffic accident in Honduras on April 25. During the Pontiac 400 at Richmond International Raceway, the race cars of Dale Earnhardt Jr., Steve Park and Michael Waltrip will each have a black stripe under the left headlight. Lopes often performed with a similar stripe under her left eye.
