Former Truck Racer Rich Bickle Retiring From Racing After Snowball Derby

After 45 years, more than 400 feature victories, three NASCAR Truck Series wins, multiple track and series championships, Hall of Fame inductions and a record-setting five Snowball Derby Championships, Rich Bickle has just two races left until he calls it quits.

Next up is the Bill Bigley, Sr 128 Super Late Model Memorial at 4-17 Southern Speedway in Punta Gorda, FL on Sunday, Nov. 27. The following weekend will be Bickle’s last year in the 54th Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL.

Bickle has his own share of memories reaching the pinnacle of racing in the NASCAR ranks. Winning three Truck Series races and finishing second in points were great achievements.
