He was also widely noted for having drilled a hole in his safety helmet so that he could smoke while racing, and for installing cigarette lighters in his race cars. [1] Trickle was allowed by NASCAR to smoke in the race car during yellow flag periods, and in the 1990 Winston 500 (now the Aaron's 499), Trickle was seen on live television by the in-car camera lighting up and smoking a cigarette.

Speaking of smoking and driving.............

 

I remember DW telling a story about his rookie season when he raced Darlington the first time.

 

He was white-knuckling the wheel going down the back streach when he was passed by David Pearson (I believe)

 

trying to light a cig.

 

LMAO at that story.
