Sea-Doo X-TEAM watercraft racer Dustin Farthing has collected $13,050 in prize money as of August 1, all of which he is donating to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Farthing from Marietta, Ga., is enjoying strong success on his Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 watercraft leading the National Pro Watercross Tour overall points in two classes with the biggest races still to come.
Farthing has leads on both the Pro GP and Pro Stock class on the Pro Watercross Tour, winning 23 out of 30 individual motos with fellow Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 mounted rider Tim Ducat in the second spot in both classes. Farthing, part owner of six BRP dealerships under the Mountain Motorsports brand, is racing aboard his Monster Energy-backed Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 watercraft and donating 100 percent of his prize money to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
“This sport has given me so much and I want to leave the sport by doing something special for the kids of Atlanta and their families whom are facing incredible health challenges,” said Farthing. “Family is the most important thing in my life and I am humbled to be able to use my talents riding a Sea-Doo watercraft to help families challenged to take care of their children.”
Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is a not-for-profit organization that provides specialized care to children from all walks of life. They rely on donations to provide the best possible care to young patients and their families now and in the future. Farthing is donating 100 percent of the prize money he earns during the 2016 watercraft racing season, plus all racing contingency funds from the Sea-Doo X-TEAM Bounty program that includes over $25,000 of additional funds available to winning Sea-Doo watercraft riders.*
“This sport has given me every opportunity to have an incredible life and now it’s my opportunity to give back,” said Farthing. "I’m having fun in my final year racing on a Sea-Doo watercraft and giving back in the most positive manner possible. With the biggest races coming up, my goal is to reach the $60,000 mark for the kids of the Atlanta who need it.”
Farthing will be competing in the final three Pro Watercross Tour events with the next event in Lake Hartwell, Ga., on August 23-24 as well as the P1 AquaX series and IJSBA World Finals taking place in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., in early October.
