Wow. Just wow. My uncle was Dick Trickle's crew chief in Wisconsin. An amazingly kind man. RIP.
Former NASCAR driver Dick Trickle is dead ... apparently having taken his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was 71 years old.
Cops in North Carolina say Trickle shot himself at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Lincoln County at 12:02 PM today.
Officials say they received a phone call before the shooting in which the caller told cops there would a dead body at the cemetery and it would be his.
Operators scrambled, trying to place a return call, but there was no answer.
When emergency responders arrived, they found Trickle's body.
