Keith started attending dirt track events in 1971 to watch his uncle at the Old Speed Bowl in Leary, Texas and the old dirt track in Idabel, Oklahoma.
In 1986 Keith decided, “what the heck,” and began his dirt track racing career in the pure stock class at Stateline Speedway. He competed in the pure stock, street stock and IMCA modified class at both Stateline Speedway and the now 67 Speedway until 2001 when he stepped out of the racecar and into the announcer’s booth. Keith will begin his 10th year as the track announcer at 67 Speedway in the spring of 2010.
In 2002 Keith joined 740 ESPN/KCMC giving local dirt track news reports on the “Big Daddy NASCAR Hour” with Chuck Zach. In 2006, Keith became the co-host for the new motorsports talk show, “Up 2 Speed,” which begins its new season in mid February on KCMC every Thursday evening at 7 p.m.
In 2006 Keith began broadcasting the racing action “live” from the speedway, calling the play by play of the racing events on the “Trackside Saturday Night” program. He is also the full time series announcer for the traveling MSRA super dirt late model series. He has announced dirt track races all over the south calling races in Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri and Mississippi, with events scheduled this year in Tennessee.
Keith also does high school play by play of Arkansas High 4A Football.
Dustin started his racing career at Stateline Speedway in 1994 in the “street stock” division, winning the first race he ever entered. Dustin found his calling, as a result, and a love for Dirt Track racing was born. He competed in the street stock division at both Stateline Speedway and the now 67 Speedway. He enjoyed great success throughout his dirt track career in both the street stock and IMCA modified divisions collecting six street stock track championships and one IMCA modified track championship. Dustin’s career spanned twelve seasons. In the spring of 2007 he joined the 740 ESPN/KCMC team landing the racing analyst role on “Trackside Saturday Night” program broadcasting the events live from 67 Speedway. That same year, he assumed the role of co-host on the weekly motorsports talk show, “Up 2 Speed” sharing the studio with long time racing competitor and friend, Keith Schutte.
In the off season, Dustin enjoys attending his children’s sporting events as a proud Dad.
