Dick Trickle

Dick Trickle was one of my favorite NASCAR racers growing up, so I am very sadden by this news.

Retired race car driver Richard “Dick” Trickle, 71, died today from an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident occurred at 12:02 p.m. at Forest Lawn Cemetery on Highway 150 East in Boger City.

The Lincoln County Communications Center received a call apparently from the victim that “there would be a dead body and it would be his “. Communications Center workers tried to place a return call to the number but did not get an answer.

Very sad, thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and the NASCAR community.
