This is just awful news for the world, especially for the NASCAR community who knew him well.

Legendary driver Dick Trickle, who even used to smoke cigarettes while racing because he was so good, has passed away due to an apparent suicide. He DID leave a note at the scene of his death.

Sources say that Dick had been sick for a while and depressed. Authorities in North Carolina say he shot himself at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Lincoln County — and they even received a call before his death saying they would find his dead body there. He was found next to his pickup.

We have word that his body has been removed from the scene and taken to a nearby hospital.

Such a sad day for racing, and our hearts go out to his friends and family.
