This next interview is with the 2005 champion, Faris Al Sultan. We had the opportunity to chat with him a few months before his biggest ever win. Huddle and Babbitt love Faris. He is old school all the way and proves it by racing in his Speedo. Faris is also into leading on the bike so that he can chase the helicopter. Enjoy!
