30 seconds with Dick Trickle
MEMPHIS, TN (October 31, 2000)
I had traveled 3 hours to go see DT drive at Memphis and I knew that he was to be signing autographs at his trailer
that morning, but did not think that I would get there in time. As I arrived, I could see him in the trailer, chatting and joking with the
fans there, but I also saw where they had cut off the line to see him. I was disappointed but pleased to have just gotten to see him. I was milling
around the area when my Father, who had come with me to the race, attempted to persuade the attendant to let me in the closed line.
As we were there pleading our case, DT, who was already late for the driver's meeting, called out and said, "Anybody dressed like that has got to be taken care of",
referring to my Dick Trickle hat, shirt, and coolie I was clutching. I made my way up to him, wished him a Happy Birthday, encouraged him for the race that day, and shook his hand as
he signed my hat. 30 seconds was all it took for him to make a fan for life. 30 seconds he did not have to give. Thank-You Dick Trickle...I truly appreciate it!
OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHIES...from Vickie Trickle-Bowman of the Dick Trickle Fan Club Site
Dick returned from Daytona Sunday morning. We watched the Daytona 500 together, as a family. We were happy for Michael Waltrip, his first Winston Cup win. We waited like others to hear news about Dale, but finally went our separate ways home. The news of Dale's death was a shock to the entire Trickle family. Dale Earnhardt is truly a legend in NASCAR racing, he had a way of making his fans, family, and fellow drivers believe he was invincible.
It's very difficult for drivers to talk about the loss of a fellow competitor. I asked Dick if he had any comments for his fans on the Website. His comments were, "My first thoughts go to Dale's family, their loss is by far the greatest. NASCAR, race fans, and we as fellow drivers, have lost one of the greatest in racing. He was one of the toughest competitors out there, you would mark your successes by if you beat Earnhardt, and then by when you gained his respect. NASCAR racing in this era, will not be the same without him."
As Dick Trickle fans, we've felt Dick has been plagued with bad luck since his move to NASCAR racing. It's times like these that make us realize how lucky we really are. Dick's been able to do something he loves for over forty years with thankfully no serious injuries. We as his family, friends, and fans should feel very lucky and blessed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Earnhardt family and all those touched by his loss.
