At about noon on Thursday, the Lincoln County Communications Center received a call indicating that there would be a dead body at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Boger City, and it would be the speaker's. Return calls to the number went unanswered. Crews arriving at the scene found Trickle's body lying near his pickup truck.

The man known as Trickling Dick will go down as a short track legend, in car cigarette smoker and a first ballot Sports Name Hall of Famer with Yogi Berra, Dick Butkus and Rollie Fingers. RIP

He was also widely noted for having drilled a hole in his safety helmet so that he could smoke while racing, and for installing cigarette lighters in his race cars

Nice
