NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Niece Racing Honors Fallen Arizona DPS Trooper Tyler Edenhofer

Tyler Edenhofer

Avondale, ARIZ. (November 9, 2018) – Arizona Department of Public Safety Trooper Tyler Edenhofer was hired in September, 2017.  A military Veteran, Tyler graduated the Academy on May 4, 2018.  Unfortunately, Tyler’s life taken too early while responding to a call for service on I-10 in Avondale.

“He was a great man, my pride and joy!” the trooper’s mother, Debbie Edenhofer, told The Arizona Republic. “My whole life was him.”

Tyler EdenhoferAll too close to this weekend’s race, the Arizona Department of Public Safety received calls of a person on the freeway in and out of the roadway near I-10 and Avondale Boulevard throwing objects at vehicles.

Unfortunately, on his last day of Field Training, Trooper Tyler Edenhofer’s Field Training Officer’s sidearm would be snatched away from him and used to take Trooper Tyler Edenhofer’s life.  In today’s world, it’s an all too often occurrence that we lose our heroes on the front lines in such a senseless manner.

This Friday night, Charlotte North Carolina’s Niece Racing made it a point to honor Tyler by racing to his memory during the Lucas Oil 150.  With his truck wrapped in Arizona DPS colors, NASCAR driver Landon Huffman raced his truck in the memory of Tyler.

It’s all too often that members of our law enforcement community are losing their lives.

We’re happy to see a national sporting event paying tribute to Tyler’s memory.

This was all made possible by the LEO project, Niece Racing, the Arizona Department of Public Safety, ISM Raceway and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Tyler’s memory will live on into the future.
