Bodine also recalled inviting Trickle to compete in one of his bobsled events in 2004 at Lake Placid, N.Y.

"They were doing interviews with him on TV and he was like, `I don't know what happened, I did the exact same thing I did the first time,'" Bodine said. "And we're all looking at him like, `Hey Dick, maybe that was the problem.'"
