“It is with heavy hearts that we pass along this bit of news we received today. Texas drifter Tyler Cox passed away today. Tyler was involved in a non-motorsports related accident recently, and stopped breathing for a period of time. Paramedics were able to keep him alive and he was in ICU for the past few days, but passed away today. Tyler competed in the NOPI Drift and D1 USA events, and was a frequent driver at many of the local grassroots events in Texas. Our thoughts go out to the friends and family of Tyler Cox.”

Our thoughts and prayers also go to the family of Tyler Cox and we hope that they find the strength to get through this difficult time.
