AMA pro roadracer Dane “The Wolverine” Westby passed away last night after being involved in a motorcycle accident on a Tulsa street. Dane was an exciting racer, winning several AMA Supersport races and always battling at the front with his friend and fellow Oklahoma roadracer, two time Daytona 200 winner Danny Eslick. Dane was killed when his motorcycle struck a curb and then slid into a telephone pole near the 1400 block of South Peoria. Details are still sketchy at this time. I will update this post as I have more information.

AMA Pro Roadracer Dane Westby passed away in Tulsa.


I am an Oklahoma based writer, photographer, videographer and adventurer. I love telling stories about people. A motorcycle is my preferred means of travel, and I have over 5,000 hours piloting small airplanes.


  1. RIP Dane. You’ll be missed. I was hoping this was a hoax.

  2. Thanks for the news. Very sorry for Dane’s family. Dane was a very respected racer and person.
