I did not know Tyce. It is always sad to hear of the
loss of another flat track racer. I'm sure many of us can look back
and recall an incident where we came close to losing our life on the racetrack. Godspeed, Tyce
Amen, Hos. I'm not even a racer, but it's sad to hear
of another one leaving this earth too soon.
My sympathies to his family and all his friends. Godspeed.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Tyces family and
Amen Wayne. I will pray for the Family.
I feel terrible because Tyce was a regular at the Lodi
Cycle Bowl and I can't recall his face or number.
But I'm sure that there are plenty that will remember Tyce forever.
A Terrible trajedy and my condolences to his friends and family.
I will be at Placerville this Saturday and you will be in my thoughts. God speed Tyce....
I did not know Tyce Heebner, but I'm saddened to hear
that we have lost another of our flattrack family.
My prayers are with Tyce and his family.
Although we only talked with Tyce a few times, he was
one of those people that stood out at the track
as he always had a smile and had that air about him that said he truly loved the sport and had a zest for life.
Godspeed Tyce...you will be missed. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
The Fishman Family
Tyce, You are trully going to be missed especially
your big smile as you walked thru the pits.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Family and Friends.... Gods Speed....

I was at Lodi last Sunday, My daughter took me aside
to tell me, brought a tear to my eyes.
I knew Tyce for many years, since he was young, he has even ridden one of my Tri. racers
back a few years ago. He was a wonderful person and Loved riding.
He surely will be missed by all that knew him and some who had not had the chance to meet and know him.
The only thing I can think is at least he went quick and was doing the one thing he loved to be doing.
He will now be ridding that big flat track in the sky with many others.
His close friend, Porky or real name Ramon Perez old AMA# 31y or ARHMA # 31X
One of our best friends and an avid flat track racer.
He loved the sport and especially loved to put on a show.
We were not present at this exhibition race but had planned to see him the next day, on Sunday at Lodi for their 50th anniversary.
We will deeply miss him and will always remember his performances, which began for us in 1982 in Monterey.
He leaves behind a son, who was present at the race and witnessed the tragic incident and his father's lasts moments.
It is our hope that Tyce's jest for life will be carried on in his son Luke.
We will always remember him.
Thank you for your condolences. Tyce was my uncle and
he is missed beyond words by his family and friends.
