Dick Trickle remembered at Madison International Speedway

OREGON (WKOW) -- One month after Wisconsin racing legend Dick Trickle tragically took his own life, the Madison International Speedway opened its season in Trickle's honor. Trickle, widely regarded as the greatest short track racer of all time, made quite a career on the Madison track, winning more than 70 races. On Sunday, racers held a prayer, and before the action there was a track-wide moment of silence in Trickle's memory. Trickle helped shape the career of veteran driver Rich Bickle of Edgerton. Bickle raced with Trickle for more than 30 years, and Bickle raced in Trickle's honor on Sunday.
