I'm sure SportsCenter will have a moment of silence. Sad ending.

It seems like he raced forever. How tragic a way to go. Godspeed.

In the 70's we lived in central Wisconsin a number of years for my dads work. We watched a ton of races at Golden Sands Raceway and I cheered for Marv Marzofca (spelling?) in his yellow Camaro to beat Dick and his Purple Mustang. The more Dick won the more I hated him and that purple Ford.

Dick Trickle was a great racer who lived his life his way. Apparently he went out his way too. Not many left who could do what he did over the years. Sirius NASCAR channel had the news at about 4:15 and the response of callers was overwhelming to hear. RIP Dick.
