Former NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Richard "Dick" Trickle, 71, died on Thursday.

According to a release from the Lincoln County (NC) Sheriff's Office, Trickle died from an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound.

The incident occurred at 12:02 p.m. ET at Forest Lawn Cemetery on Highway 150 East in Boger City.

The release states that the Lincoln County Communications Center received a call apparently from the victim that "there would be a dead body and it would be his." Communications Center workers tried to place a return call to the number but did not get an answer.

The first emergency units arriving on the scene located the body lying near the victim's pickup truck.

Trickle was a Lincoln County resident and had lived there since the early 1990's.

Trickle maded 303 Cup starts from 1970-2002. He earned 36 top-10 finishes, 15 of them top fives.
