Dick Trickle Bio and Race History

Trickle's NASCAR Busch Series debut was at The Milwaukee Mile in 1984, where he won his first ever Bud Pole. When the checkered flag dropped, Trickle finished third behind Sam Ard and Alan Kulwicki. Bobby Allison finished fourth and Davey Allison claimed fifth. After that memorable race, Trickle put his NASCAR Busch Series career on hold to pursue other circuits. Trickle went on to become a two-time ASA and nine-time ARTGO champion.

It was not until 1996 that Trickle elected to run as many NASCAR Busch Series races as his NASCAR Winston Cup Series schedule would allow. From 1996 to '99, Trickle drove an average of 53 races per year in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series and NASCAR Busch Series. Trickle won the NASCAR Winston Cup Series Rookie of the Year Award in 1989, and has posted 36 top-10 finishes in that series.

He started racing in 1958 on dirt tracks in the Midwest. During one single season alone, Trickle won 67 feature races on short tracks throughout the country. In his 40 years of racing, Trickle has won over 1,200 races, which has earned him the title, the "Winningest Stock Driver in America."
