RIP Dane Westby

Man this sucks...I had the pleasure to meet and hang out with Dane and his Dad on a few occasions over the past few years. He was an awesome yet humble and down to earth guy. I'll definitely miss chatting with him and his Father and checking out their cool collection of pit bikes. He was looking very promising for this upcoming MotoAmerica season debut...visiting the track won't be the same anymore. Rest in Peace and ride free buddy. Godspeed Wolverine.

And he rode his pushbike...

...all the way from OK to Daytona this year. As a former pushbike racer, I can appreciate that.

Godspeed, Dane.

Wow, how sad. It makes me pause to think that someone with his skills may have lost control trying to avoid being hit by a cager... Where does that leave the likes of me in an emergency avoidance maneuver if he couldn't pull it off? Must always be vigilant.

I really enjoyed watching him race, he was always so enthusiastic with a huge smile, doing what he loved. Rest in peace.
