Dustin started racing in 1999, driving Go-Karts at the
Douglas County Speedway, because he thought it would be fun and he thought
he would be good at it.
His career highlights have been in Go-Karts so far. In
1999 he was the JR points champion. He has been a 2 time Jayhawk JR
Spectacular winner and was 2nd runner up in points at Thunderlake
Speedway. His greatest thrill was taking the checkered flag in the last
race of the year, knowing he had won the championship.
The thrill of racing is just being in the driver's seat
and giving it all you got. Dustin is most proud of racing every Friday
night with the best driver's in the midwest. His thoughts on racing are
"If all else fails, give it more gas."
Dustin says about racing, "to be smart, smooth and
safe. And to be slower is to be faster."
His biggest dream would be to become a Nascar Nextel Cup
Driver. His racing hero's are Dale Earnhardt and Ken Schrader.
