LINCOLN COUNTY,NC--Reports say retired Nascar driver Richard "Dick" Trickle was found dead Thursday from a self inflicted gunshot wound.

Lincoln County Sheriffs say the incident occurred  around 12 p.m. Thursday after they received a call apparently from Trickle ,71, that "there would be a dead body and it would be his."

Sheriffs say emergency units arrived at Forest Lawn Cemetery and located Trickle's body near his pickup truck.

Reports say Trickle left a suicide note at the scene but the contents of the note have not been released.

Trickle retired from racing in 2002 and has lived in Lincoln County since the 1990's.
