Dorsey Schroeder is a race car driver born February 5, 1953 in Kirkwood, Missouri. Since August 2015, he has served as Race Director for the Pirelli World Challenge series. Over the course of his career in Sports car racing, he has won 40 professional races in 242 starts, including seventeen Trans-Am series wins.[1]

Early life

As the son of a car dealer, Schroeder grew up around automobiles and received his first (wrecked) car from his father at the age of fourteen, and was expected to do his own repairs over the next two years.[2]

Racing career

In 1971, at the age of 19, he became the first person under the age of 21 to be issued an SCCA National competition license.[3]

Dorsey was a successful sports car driver throughout the 1990s in the Trans-Am series, winning the championship with Roush Racing as a rookie in 1989 with six wins.[4][5] In 1990, he was named IMSA GT Championship GTO class champion with three wins. Between 1998 and 2002, he also competed in Grand-Am and American Le Mans series events, recording a win at Mid-Ohio in 1998 for Dyson Racing.[6] In recent years, Schroeder has competed in IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship races at Daytona and Sebring in the Prototype class.

Schroeder competed in IROC in 1990 representing the SCCA Trans-Am Series and 1991 representing IMSA Camel GT. He finished 7th in IROC XIV and 12th in IROC XV.

He was also known as a NASCAR "road course ringer", who made nine Winston Cup series starts between 1991 and 2001.[7]

He served as a color analyst for Fox Sports 1's coverage of the United SportsCar Championship and was previously a color analyst for Speed Channel's television broadcast of the Rolex Sports Car Series and American Le Mans Series.[8] One of Dorsey's great accomplishments was being featured on the Dinner With Racers podcast.

Personal life

Dorsey currently lives in Florida with his wife Kim and daughter Carissa Schroeder from his second marriage. He owns a seasonal restaurant in Osage Beach, Missouri called "Dorsey's Pit Stop".
