(Slinger, WI) May 17, 2013 – With heavy hearts the staff at Slinger Speedway would like to pass on our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Dick Trickle. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. There are many Dick Trickle stories to be told and bench races to be run but those are for another day... today we are comforted knowing Dick is resting peacefully. Gods speed Dick!
In the coming days we will be making arrangements to honor Dick at this year’s Slinger Nationals, an event he suggested Wayne Erickson create back in 1980. The Slinger Nationals turned into a mid week classic that allowed barnstorming racers an opportunity to compete without missing their weekly tracks events. Dick Trickle will be missed by many, but Slinger Speedway will always remember him.
