Dick Trickle, Nascar legend committed suicide today.. age 71. R.I.P.

Dick had a cigarette lighter in his cars and would smoke on the caution laps...I'm not a smoker but props for him doing that.. when Nascar men were real men and not Madison Ave made up politically correct boys for their advertisers.

Sad wordsto go out on:
<span style="font-style: italic">
The Lincoln County Communications Center received a call, apparently from Trickle, that &quot;there would be a dead body and it would be his.''</span>

Saw this sad news on another board earlier today, sounds like he may've been distraught over a few things including the loss of his grandaughter a few years earlier as today's incident happened at the graveyard where she is?
I remember Dick from his snowmobile racing successes in the 70's, always a very competitive racer running Yamaha factory hardware.
RIP Dick, prayers and condolences to his family and friends.
