Dickie teamed up with Charles D. “Red” Cox in a 1956 Chevrolet 245 horsepower two-door hardtop stocker as their first partnership endeavor, which led them to the famed 1956 Chevrolet 245 horsepower Bel Air 9-passenger station wagon named “Stagecoach”. With Stagecoach, winning became a way of life for Dickie and Red at local and national drag races. The Stagecoach was sold to racer Bruce Wilkinson, and he also won several local and national races with it. Dickie and Red purchased a new 1968 Camaro with a 302 Engine and immediately began racing the new car named, “Silly Bear.” By the time the new Camaro was equipped with a Grumpy Jenkins engine, Jerry Stahl experimental headers (Stahl Headers), and chassis and traction system, the winning ways of Dickie Ogles raged on. Dickie was coached by Herb McCandless (Mr. 4-Speed) on shifting. All of Dickie’s cars were stick shift.
