Farrow, Schmidt take final RMXCRC race

Seventh snowmobile title for Farrow

Bellevue’s Tracey Farrow has come a long way in the world of Rocky Mountain snowmobile racing since he started 13 years ago, in 1988.

Now, he’s planning to give up full-time competitive racing and the year-round training that goes with it—like climbing up Carbonate Mountain four times a week to keep in tough physical and mental shape.

Farrow has left his mark.

Recently, the 1983 Wood River High School graduate earned his seventh season championship on the Rocky Mountain Cross-Country Racing Circuit (RMXCRC).

It was quite an achievement for Farrow, who rode with Rocky Sherbine of Bellevue in his early years and finished up driving with partners Cody Swanson and Hoss Schmidt.

Farrow, 36, linked up with Bellevue driver Schmidt to win the final two RMXCRC events of the 2001 season, which were two 45-mile races for 50 drivers April 7 at Cooke City, Mt.

The Two-Man Pro Class victories in the RMXCRC season finale at Cooke City gave Farrow five wins in six RMXCRC races this winter aboard 2001 Arctic Cat 440 Sno Pros.

Farrow had teamed up with Cody Swanson of Bellevue for the first three wins, but Cody blew out his knee during one of the West Yellowstone (Mt.) sno-cross finals in March. So Schmidt took Cody’s place at Cooke City, and Cody underwent knee surgery last week.

The machine shop manager at Rocky Mountain Hardware, Farrow started out by winning the bronze buckles for his first three RMXCRC overall titles, then worked his way up through silver and finally arrived at gold with his seventh.

Farrow and Schmidt were sponsored this season by Brico of Idaho, Sutton & Sons, Burks Excavation and Uhrig Fencing.

Taking second place in the Two-Man Pro Class were Brandon Swanson of Bellevue and Barry Locke of Mendon, Utah aboard 2001 Arctic Cats. They are sponsored by Brico of Idaho/Swanson Trucking.
