Oh my goodness…..
Rich Bickle – a three-time winner in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and long-time NASCAR National Series competitor — was involved in an insane accident in Super Late Model competition at Slinger Speedway on Sunday Evening, which saw the 60-year-old ramp up the outside wall in turn three, riding along the fencing and coming to rest inside of the facility with a destroyed No. 45.
The crash was extremely scary-looking, with Bickle’s car sending pieces of the track’s signage flying into the air, along with various parts and pieces from his machine. The fans that were watching the racing action from the turn three area, scattered quickly, as the underside of the white, red and black No. 45 came twords them at a high rate of speed.
Luckily, Bickle – who is making his ‘retirement tour’ in racing this season, which kicked off with the General Tire 200 at Daytona International Speedway for the ARCA Menards Series — was able to emerge from his car uninjured.
Dan Margetta captured his video of Bickle’s accident and posted it to his YouTube channel:
