Dick Trickle

The NASCAR world has been left in shock from the death of Dick Trickle, a suicide from a self inflicted gun shot wound. Dick was a legendary driver in NASCAR not for his success but his personality, competing for 24 years in NASCAR racing

If you think tweeting during a race was crazy, Trickle drilled a whole in his own crash helmet so he could have a smoke during the yellow flag periods! In the 1990 Winston 500, he was caught on live TV doing it, and below is the video.
