On March 23, 2015 Dane Westby lost his life after a streetbike accident in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Westby had recently completed MotoAmerica/Dunlop tire testing at Circuit of the Americas, where he placed fastest among Superstock 1000 riders. He finished second-place in the 2012 AMA Pro Daytona SportBike Championship and was the first three-time winner in the SportBike class in 2014. He had numerous WERA racing championships to his credit prior to his career in AMA Pro Racing as well. Chris Mayte of On The Throttle created the video below in remembrance of Westby.
