Dick Trickle was a legend in the NASCAR community, and he was recently found dead a cemetery from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. While he DID leave a note, the contents have not made public — so there's no way of knowing why he did what he did.
His brother, though, believes Dick took his own life because he couldn't

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.

Tony Hawk is a well spoken, kind, and philanthropic dude — so we're wondering if he's always been like that, or if this pic (above) from 1986 shows a DIFFERENT Tony Hawk that we all know!
Tony posted the picture with this caption:
"Livin' large in '86"
We're willing to bet that he had some of those usual teenage annoyances, but we're sure he was a well-rounded kid back then too!
We mean, just look at that pic! Anyone with hair that blonde has to be a sweetheart! LOLz!
Keep sharin' pics like these, Tony! You've come a loooooong way!

Porn star legend Ron Jeremy has just been hospitalized in CRITICAL CONDITION after a heart aneurysm!
According to his manager, Ron actually drove himself to Cedars-Sinai after having chest pains! This is when they found the aneurysm, which is not good news for anyone — especially at 59 years old.
The worst part is that his condition then worsened, he was put into ICU, and is now being prepped for surgery!
We hope he'll be okay!!
We're pulling for you, Ron!

Gene Simmons is mostly known for wearing a lot of makeup, rocking out, and having a huuuuuuuge tongue! He's also know for his reality show, Gene Simmons' Family Jewels!
When we met up with him on the red carpet for Movie 43, we had no idea that we'd be getting some fitness tips from the legend — well, actually, more like dieting tips!
He's lost 25 pounds! So fab!
Listen to what he has to say (above) — and we wonder if he and Benjamin Watson traded health secrets!! Ha!

This is just awful.
Last week, we reported that boxing legend Hector "Macho" Camacho had been gunned down in a drive by shooting in Puerto Rico. We're sad to say that Hector has now been taken off life support, and has died at the age of 50.
Camacho was declared brain dead on Thursday, but his family didn't know whether to remove him from life support or not. He went into cardiac arrest, though, and that tough decision was made for them.
We are so sorry for their loss, and boxing has lost a legend.
