It’s worth noting when one of the sport’s winningest racers steps back into the ring to battle it out with the current stock of competitors. In the case of 17-time Pro Class champion Dustin Farthing, the venerable racer took his competitive edge spirit off of the closed course and applied it to a lucrative partnership between he and Ryan Hardwick, expanding Georgia’s chain of Mountain Motorsports powersports dealerships. Those following Farthing via social media will note that the champ lacks for very little these days, so his return to the saddle is clearly motivated by more than the new purse being dangled before today’s racers.
Farthing wrote on his Instagram page the following: I’m excited to be racing again in 2016 on a new Sea-Doo RXPX 300. I started playing around with the idea of returning to the sport a few months ago, and with the help of Monster Energy Sea-Doo, those thoughts have now become a reality. I previously raced for Sea-Doo back in 1997 and 1998, and during those two seasons I won two National and one World Championship. I’m looking forward to returning to a mutually beneficial partnership with this great manufacturer and continuing on to earn additional championships in 2016.”
We look forward to welcoming back “King D” to the world of closed course, and anticipate an announcement outlying his intended race schedule.
