boyvoyeur: I wonder why he did this. Was he sick? Depressed? And why do it in a cemetery? And why call 911 before you do it? Very weird.


He did it right. This way, there's is no land or property that is made "less valuable" or "spoiled" in any way, and people who have seen this type of thing before are almost certainly the first to find him. I respect him for doing it this way, it's very considerate of others.

Trickle was a legend before racers were cool and popular. He kicked your ass and you rememberd it. Then he'd have a beer w you.

David Caraviello @dcaraviello
How big a deal was Dick Trickle? Think the "Days of Thunder" folks chose this last name by accident?

landon cassill @landoncassill
Trickle was a legend-When i was 14 we beat doors for 50 laps @ Madison-He gave me the boot w/ 5 to go, offered me a cigarette after the race

@joeylogano
Sad to hear of Dick Trickle. At some point we were all short trackers. He was the best.

Ryan McGee @ESPNMcGee
I remember when Dick Trickle finally won a NASCAR Busch race, Hickory '97. In Victory Lane he says "I get free beer, right?"

Found this on the (main, front-and-center) story on ThatsRacin.com:

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

Tom Higgins, a longtime NASCAR writer and friend of Trickle's, said the former race car driver was distraught after his granddaughter's death.

"He never, ever got over that," Higgins said.

My guess is that he wanted to:

a)Go out on his own terms
b)Reduce the impact on everyone around him on a certain level

Probably didn't understand that he would almost certainly end up at the coroner's office prior to being interred.
Apparently made a point of not making a mess in his truck. Calling ahead reduced the chances of his discovery being traumatic/delayed.

Not saying any of this is sane or logical... or that it isn't either.

So that may help answer the 'why'.

The Bestest: post0089: Suicide is cowardly.

Let's say the terminal illness theory is correct; he's already lived a very long and storied life. Do you think it's more noble to live out your final years in agony while putting your family through seeing you suffering?


Most people that age have lived a long and storied life. "Putting your family through" it can be very sad and therapeutic at the same time for family members and the person with the terminal illness. I have had experiences with both. I realize that not all experiences are the same, but I can say that my close family member that died from Cancer, in his last couple weeks, got to hold his only great grandchild soon after he was born. It meant a lot to him and it was the second time I saw him cry in my entire life.

I saw one of my best friends lose one of his parents to suicide under similar conditions. That friend could only ask "why"? They still had time to share and that was taken from him and his siblings by suicide.

Obviously everyone will have their feelings about suicide and the different circumstances where it is justified or not. For me, when you have a family that you love and loves you back, you are committed to their feelings and well being as much as you are to your own. I cannot speak to others' situations and circumstances that I have not experienced myself; my opinion and feelings about this have been shaped by my experiences. Hard to be objective, I guess.

You're absolutely right, and it's a choice we all have at any given moment.  It's not as if we are going to posthumously charge him with a crime.  It's just, in my opinion, sad to see people take that option.  But hey, there he went and many others have and will continue to.  I just can't see ever doing that myself unless I were in a terminal pain situation with no hope.  This whole "life" business is pretty freaky, I for one intend to see where this is going as long as the gods, goddesses, laws of nature, whatever you prefer allow me to do so.

Thanks for the memories, Dick Trickle.  You were one of a kind.

I wonder why he did this. Was he sick? Depressed? And why do it in a cemetery? And why call 911 before you do it? Very weird.

Apparently he called the police and told them they'd find a body at Forest Lawn

/surprised they didn't just say "well, duh"

Damn, that's sad.  I'm not a NASCAR fan, but years ago, when ESPN was still enjoyable and not so self-absorbed, they would always, ALWAYS say where Dick Trickle finished in ever NASCAR race at the end of the bit about that day's race on SportsCenter.  Some people (not Trickle, AFAIK) got a little rankled at the sophomoric humor, so they later wouldn't outright mention his name, but say, "You-know-who finished 43rd."
