Locker room: Dane Westby

A young Tulsa native is riding his way to the top of the nation’s motorcycle circuit.

Life in the fast lane apparently agrees with Tulsa native Dane Westby.

In motorcycle races from Utah to Florida, from Michigan to Texas, Westby — the grandson of Katie Westby, late co-founder of the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa — is making a name for himself in this dangerous but exhilarating sport.

Westby, 25, got his start with motorcycles at a young age, thanks to his father, Tryg Westby, who raced Superbikes and had a small repair and accessory shop in Tulsa.

As many young boys do, Westby was soon emulating his father. Then, he began riding street and dirt bikes, exhibiting a natural talent and skill beyond his years. He won several amateur championships at age 16 and turned professional five years later.

TulsaPeople caught up with Westby between races.

How did you begin racing?

Motorcycles have always been in our family, and I started riding when I was 4 years old. I remember riding my little motorcycle downhill in our driveway. At first I could only ride it with the engine off. I would then push it back up the hill to ride it down again and again. I finally was allowed to ride with the engine on, but I totally forgot where the brakes were. I ran right into the garage.

You were in a pretty serious crash in 2009. What happened?

It was the last lap of the Daytona 200 and everyone in the lead pack was close together trying to draft off each other. The track at Daytona is really a very steep bowl-like track. We were at the bottom of the bowl and came upon a slower rider, whom we were ready to lap. As I passed the slower rider, he made contact with me — and this is not really a contact sport — and I crashed. Luckily, I ended up with just a broken thumb. We have great protective equipment or it could have been a lot worse.

What motivates you to succeed?

At first, it was just a fun thing to do with my dad. Now, it’s neat to be able to compete with the best riders in the world and see if I can come out on top mentally. That’s what I like about the sport. 

Do you have any specific goals in racing?

Once I win a championship here in the states, I would like to ride on the world circuit called “World Superbikes.”

Do you plan to go back and finish college?

I actually studied art previously. I definitely plan to go back and take some business-oriented classes, perhaps not full time, but I do want to get my degree.

What advice would you have for a youngster interested in racing?

Racing is a pretty expensive endeavor and it takes a lot of effort. You’ll need to find some sponsors. But just never give up if you enjoy the sport. You’ll soon know if this is the sport for you.
