There has been so much support and love shown for the Trickles, that all of it could not possibly fit on one page.
Dear Family Members of Chris Trickle,
I am sooooo sorry to hear about the loss you have just endured. This is such a
horrible and terrible tragedy. My father Andrew R. Niksick was brutally
tortured and murdered in his own home 15 years ago, the police know 100% who
the killer is but cannot arrest him because of a technicality with the search
warrant which we have found out is not true. My god this violence has to stop!
You are in my thoughts and prayers and I pray that you may find justice for
this horrible tragedy!!!!!
God bless you all,

I had the pleasure of meeting Chris at the races at the Las Vegas Motor
Speed Way. My brother and I raced slot cars with him at one point in time.
I will be the first to say he was the greatest person I or anyone ever had
the chance to meet. The room always lite up when he entered. He was very
friendly and everyone liked him.
I personaly think the thing that got me the most about Chris was the time
he made for all his fans, young and old alike. He was a great racer, but most
of all he was an even better person, he will be missed by all.
We all will love and miss him dearly!!!!!!!!!!!!

After giving so much to racing, Chris Trickle's life was cut short. In a few
decades of excellence, Chris inspired many NASCAR fans. The Trickle family
have long been quality competitors admired by countless people of all
ages. Chris will no doubt be remembered for years to come, as he left an
indelible mark on many hearts.
We didn't know Chris. We met only one time at Colorado National Speedway.
What a nice young man he is. He took time to talk to me when he was
trying to get his car ready to race. I will always remember his smile.
God bless you for having such a wonderful son, he will be missed. We
will keep you in our thoughts.

I did not know Chris very well, but I knew him well enough to know that
we were lucky to have him here while we did, he will be missed by many more people
than he knew.
Some day I would like to meet Jennifer and the Trickle family, to tell them
that the way they handled the whole ordeal was amazing. They made the
best of the worst possible situation, Chris was lucky to have that kind
of support. One can't choose their parents, if they could there would be
a waiting list for Mr. & Mrs Trickle.
Chris was a guy no one will soon forget whether you knew him or not. Many things stand out in my mind when I think about him. Chris had a lot of respect for the equipment he was in as well as other competitors he was racing against. He was one of the few racecar drivers I have known who would truly admit when another driver or the racetrack had gotten the best of him that day. He knew how good ( or how off ) he was, and wasn't afraid to admit it. His parents teachings of good values were apparent if you ever spent even two minutes of your life with him. The only thing I can be thankful for right now is having the opportunity of ever knowing Chris. My life has been bettered by having contact with such a tremendous man. He will be truly missed by me and my family.

My wishes are with the Trickle Family. Chris was a good guy to know and I wish he was still here. Chris was my favorite Southwest Tour driver. I know I will miss him. I'm sure all of you will. I send my best
regards to the family and Chris as Plenty of Racing left.

It is a sad day in the life of a wonderful person who is no longer with us.
With the support of your family and friends you should be able to make it
through this very difficult time.Chris really enjoyed life and he showed that
on the track. Try to remember all of the good times and someday the
perpetrator of this horrible crime will be brought to justice. My thoughts are
I am sorry for the grief you all have had to go through, for someone to take a life without any care for life, when it so precious to us all. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
