Dick Trickle Memorial Project

Memorial Description

 

Plans, engineering, fund raising, and now construction are currently in progress for a Memorial in honor of racing legend Dick Trickle. The Memorial will be constructed in the Village Park in Rudolph, Wisconsin where Dick grew up and began his illustrious racing career from very humble beginnings.  The committee is very busy raising funds and building the Memorial.  Thus far our fund raising campaign has mainly been grass roots donations from friends, fans, competitors, and other supporters of Dick.


The highlights of the Memorial will be a larger than life size bronze statue of Dick waving to a crowd like he so often did.  Behind the statue of Dick will be two semi circular walls.  The wall immediately behind Dick will be a wall with various sized inscriptions in black granite with the names and words of donors.  The size of the inscription area will be determined by the amount of the donation.  The second semi circular wall will display pictures with words of dedication of the donor of some of the 200 race cars Dick drove throughout his illustrious career.  These pictures will also be sponsored by donors and the size of each given picture will also be determined by the donation.  Please note the tire brand name and logo displayed in any pictures or engineer's drawings were done so by the engineer who created the drawing.  At this time there has been no sponsorship offered by any tire company.


The mission and purpose of this Memorial is to educate and exemplify how one man overcame a serious childhood injury, set very high goals and achieve them by dedicating his life to competing in and succeeding in the world of stock car racing.  Your financial and moral support is needed to help us complete this worthy project.  The Dick Trickle Memorial Project is affiliated with the Incourage Community Foundation of Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin.  They are the Fiscal Agent for the project and a 501(c)3 organization, thus all donations are tax deductible.  We are extremely grateful to all who have already made a contribution.
