Is that anything like finding a stranger in the Alps?

How is he a victim?


Some nutbag shot him!

There was a football player for the Browns in the 70's by the name of Fair Hooker

Until the investigation is complete the police don't know who shot him.  They have a pretty good idea but need to look into it anyway.

The Downfall: Jeez ESPN.com has no mention. But I guess this news has only broke in the last 30 minutes. Suicide is always sad. I also didn't realize he was over 70.


It's up now.

The Lions had a safety in the 90s named Harry Colon.

As I recall, he was a clean player.

NASCAR.com has nothing. One of my coworkers says they'll refuse to mention it, due to it being bad publicity.

I'm inclined to believe him. That's how NASCAR the organization has been lately.

It is equally likely that you simply can't find it due to the disaster of a website that is Nascar.com.

No real NASCAR fan goes to that site.  If you want real news, go to jayski.com he's the Matt Drudge of NASCAR.

Actually, NASCAR generally tries to ignore any era before the manufactured chase was created, or the cookie cutter cars.

Dale Earnhardt, Sr. and Richard Petty might get a mention every now and then, but that's it.

And since Dick Trickle killed himself? No way they'll mention him. Hell, Tim Richmond didn't exist from 1989 until 2010 when ESPN did that 30 for 30 Documentary on him.

Heathen: exick: lockers: The Lincoln County Communications Center received a call apparently from the victim that "there would be a dead body and it would be his."

How is he a victim?

I'm not sure there's really another English word that you can use in its place. Do we have a generic word for the recipient of a self-inflicted bullet? "Committer of suicide" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

suicidist?


Suicide can refer to a person.  But when he called he wasn't yet one.  He wasn't yet a victim either, though, right?

The official NASCAR Twitter and FB feeds now have minimal tribute posts. Still nothing on the site. It's like they're posting the least they can get away with.

JustGetItRight: Astorix: I wonder if it's going to come out that he was very sick. RIP. Sad for his family.

It wouldn't be completely shocking.  You almost never saw him without a cigarette.

Hate to hear it.  He was a fantastic driver.


Yeah. He even had a lighter installed in his car so he could grab a smoke during yellow laps. That always cracked me up when they'd show his in-car and there he'd be, puffin away.

Sad news.

His name was Richard Trickle, he insisted on being called Dick. People tried to get him to use Richard or at least Rich, but nope, he insisted on Dick.

It's also a regional thing. In those days, dinosaurs roamed the earth, the cars were made of steel, the men were made of iron, and NASCAR drivers were from south of Richmond and east of New Orleans.
 
2013-05-16 06:59:20 PM
goddamn sad news. I got to see him race a few times at Sears Point. Even when he wasn't good, he was entertaining, and one of those stalwarts who you assumed would just always be around.

lockers: labman: lockers: The Lincoln County Communications Center received a call apparently from the victim that "there would be a dead body and it would be his."

Oh I don't know, maybe because his patents named him Dick Trickle.

If he filed his patents that way, who else is their to blame then himself?


Speaking of filing the wrong paperwork. There's a liquor store in Huntington Beach called "wine 7 spirits". We figured when they submitted the paperwork they forgot to push the shift key, got 7 instead of &. And said "Fark it, we'll take it".

This little blurb and a picture from a link on the front page is about it:

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Dick Trickle on his passing today. Dick was a legend in the short-track racing community, particularly in his home state of Wisconsin, and he was a true fan favorite.  Personalities like Dick Trickle helped shape our sport. He will be missed." -- Brian France, NASCAR Chairman & CEO

All the drivers are tweeting RIPs though.

I would do the RIP meme but Im not GISing dick trickle.

Seriously though this sucks.  I certainly wasn't expecting to hear that the guy with the best name in NASCAR offed himself.  Im also kind of surprised at the respectfulness in this thread.  Usually you'll get a chorus of "selfish" "coward" etc etc in a suicide thread.

I dunno, but he did have a hole cut in the thumb of his lighter hand glove so he could light the lighter.

It'll get mentioned on the pre-race (Speed channel), for sure. But I doubt that the 'how' of his passing will be announced. Fox will have Darrell, or his brother Mikey, or his other brother Mikey give a quick eulogy and career tour. And Mike Joy will say something mid-race, 'cause that's how he is.
