The points race between multi-time national and world champion, Dustin Farthing and privateer Camden Powell came to a boiling point this weekend and the two battled it out for rough water supremacy at Round 2 of the P1 AquaX series at Daytona Beach.

Farthing came well-equipped with his factory Yamaha race crew but was bested in Moto 2 by Powell aboard his 310X. Undaunted, Farthing clinched the checkered in Moto 3 fetching him the overall and the second consecutive win at Daytona (2022 and 2023).

Farthing wrote, “Our team has absolutely shined the last 2 races in big surf. Thank you to an amazing group of friends that have become our family over the years. It takes a village to run a race team and help raise our boys. The team busted their ass and gave us every opportunity to win races.”

Here’s the original Facebook post from Yamaha Motor USA:
Multi-time World and National Pro watercraft racing champion Dustin Farthing wins Round 2 of the P1 AquaX Pro Enduro Tour held in Daytona Beach over the weekend.

Farthing (pictured) finished the three-moto event 1-2-1 on his Yamaha FX SVHO WaveRunner, besting Camden Powell and fellow Yamaha FX SVHO pilot Tory Snyder who finished 2-3 overall, respectively.

One of the most noticeable rides of the day came from Deven Farthing, who bounced back from Moto 1 and Moto 2 DNFs to finish second in Moto 3, giving his dad Dustin, space to rack up more points over Powell, who follows him in tour points.
