UPDATE #4 - FACT - (5-21-13 @ 10:50 am) - An update on the never ending saga of Tyler Walker. A fan of IBRACN.com brought this article to my attention and I appreciate it. TheSpectrum.com ran a article on Tyler Walker on May 16th. It states that Tyler is scheduled to appear in court on June 13th for a review of evidence hearing in the case. The purpose is to determine if the prosecution has sufficient evidence to continue to trial.
The defense attourney stated Walker has been working on a plea deal but are going ahead with the evidencual hearing in the meantime. In the article, it states that Redondo Beach, CA police reported an arrest at Tyler's California address two weeks prior to this incident on a charge of possession of a controlled substance for sale. The story never ends for this guy.

UPDATE #3 - FACT - (4-4- 13 @ 2:40 pm) - I have it confirmed from a news reporter covering the story for TheSpectrum.com that all charges are still current against Tyler Walker. They have not been dropped, altered, or changed in any way. His next court appearance is scheduled for April 15th but it is a second roll call where a trial date will be set.
On the stage of innocent until proven guilty, Tyler is a free man. I have no idea what his restrictions are regarding traveling but he could drive a sprint car in the mean time...the question is how far can he travel to race? Stay tuned...I'll keep digging.
UPDATE #2 - FACT - (4-3-13 @ 11:40 pm) - Apparently this story is being reported on in AARN (Area Auto Racing News). I am not a subscriber but reading what others are posting about the article, AARN states that the #35 team will have Tyler Walker in the car and run at Williams Grove and Port Royal. BUT, I'm hearing Walkers next trial date is April 15th so there is a lot that has to happen before he sees the seat of a sprint car any time soon. I'm still checing on some stuff regarding Tylers current legal status.
UPDATE #1 - FACT - (4-3-13 @ 2:20 pm) - I've been receiving information regarding Tyler Walker's status and rumors about him returning to the seat of a sprint car in PA this summer. So, I've been doing some digging to see what I can find out about Tyler and I haven't been able to find out much. I found an article written by Mori Kessler on February 5th on the StGeorgeUtah.com HERE that states the following charges that Tyler faces. They are as follows.....Tyler faces several class B and class C misdemeanors related to drug possession and alcohol. He faces two drug-related third felonies. Also, Walker faces a class B misdemeanor for DUI, and a third degree felony for fleeing from police. The article states that the initial court date was postponed and rescheduled for March 11th but I have yet to find out what happened on March 11.
I've been told that Tyler Walker is still the driver of the Sorokach Motorsports #35. If the team wants to race and Tyler can't make it, Jessica Zemken will be the driver as JZ posted on her Facebook page. I'll keep digging for info. on this case and see what is happening.
FACT - (1-31-13 @ 6:30 pm) - Story broke this afternoon that Tyler Walker was arrested in Utah after a high speed chase that started in Nevada, went through Arizona and ended in Utah. Tyler was arrested for multiple charges and methamphetamines, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and alcohol were found in the car. The chase started when Nevada police tried to stop Walker for speeding.

You have to feel sorry for a guy like this but when someone has had several chances and still doesn't figure it out, it is hard to. He needs help and I hope he finally gets it for himself. Hopefully this is rock bottom for him and he turns his life around. Talent wasted.
