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.
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. 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. In recent years, Schroeder has competed in IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship races at Daytona and Sebring in the Prototype class.
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. One of Dorsey's great accomplishments was being featured on the Dinner With Racers podcast.
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".
