I'm not a racing fan by any means but he had the best name ever in racing. Sportcenter would always announce where he finished after every race back in the day. He even had a helmet fitted in the '80s so he could smoke out of it. Way ahead of his time.

Weird, I just started a thread the other day about all-time funniest sports names. Sad to see the king of them all do this.

I have absolutely no evidence whatsoever.... complete guess.... people this age often commit suicide because of a terminal illness..... cancer or such.....

Dick Trickle was a genuine character...... definitely one of the best names.

RIP Dick!!!

Tom Higgins, a longtime Observer racing writer and friend of Trickle’s, said the former race car driver had been distraught after his granddaughter’s death.

n 2001, Trickle’s granddaughter Nicole Ann Bowman was killed in a car accident in front of East Lincoln High School. She is buried in the cemetery where police found his truck and body on Thursday.

Actually, elderly males are the most likely group to commit suicide.

I'll never forget him having an automotive cigarette lighter in his car and smoking during cautions.

He wasn't very good at winning, he never one a point race in the Winston cup, he did win an All-Star race. He was fairly popular, most anyone who followed racing knew him. He earned around 7 million from racing though. Sad to hear of his passing, there is a lot that goes on behind locked doors and smiles sometimes.
