Trickle was a NASCAR driver. On 2 February 1997 Trickle left his home in Las Vegas around 9pm to play tennis with a friend at a lighted court. As he drove onto to the freeway, a car drove along side his and fired shots into his car hitting him in the head. Trickle died from his wounds on 25 March 1998, 409 days after the shooting. At the time of the shooting, Nevada law limited murder prosecution to one year and one day[1]. Trickle's death from his wounds exceeded the prosecution time limit. In 1999 Nevada passed a law (Chris Trickle bill) which removed the time limit on prosecution for murder charges. Trickle's murder remains unsolved. Trickle was the nephew of NASCAR driver Dick Trickle
