I can't recall how true this was but ESPN said they would do a special on Dick Trickle if he ever won a race.

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.

RIP I will always remember him being the one that would smoke during the yellow flags.

Damn shame when you think the only way out of your problems is to kill yourself.
