There will be a moment of silence for Wisconsin Rapids native Dick Trickle before tonight's truck series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Images of Trickle will be displayed on the world's largest HDTV.
His brother, Chuck Trickle who lives in Las Vegas, told ESPN that Dick was in tremendous pain under his left breast and was going to the doctor twice a day to figure out the problem. But doctors could never locate the problem.
Chuck said when he spoke with Dick last week, he was very down and believes the pain was the reason.
Just 40 miles outside of Charlotte, Trickle died Thursday from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at a cemetery where his granddaughter is buried.
A private funeral is planned for family members on Monday.
