His shocking suicide in 2013 made headlines. His name was a punchline on SportsCenter for years. But who was Dick Trickle, really? This Thursday, NASCAR Productions and FS1 explore the story of the man many consider to be the winningest race car driver in history in the short documentary film, White Knight.

 

From his roots in Wisconsin and short track domination in the 70s and 80s, to winning Rookie of the Year in NASCAR at age 48, White Knight gets to the heart of who Dick Trickle was as a human being through archival footage and original interviews with friends and competitors.

 

Beneath the legend of Dick Trickle lies something deeper. #WhiteKnight: Thursday on FS1's #NASCAR #RaceHub.
