"Hey, NASCAR fans, whatever happened to Dick Trickle? Seems like he kind of petered out..."
Actually, according to Wikipedia, he's 71 years old, which pretty much explains it, in more ways than one.
Actually, I'm not so much offering this gem of humor as trying to bait Sentinel into reviving this poor thread. I poked around the forum a little and learned he's been concentrating on finding a lost dog, certainly more important than fooling around on-line. Hope it goes well.
