Doug Gust, who made a name for himself as one of the most accomplished ATV Motocross racing stars competing around the world for team Suzuki since the 1980s, took note of crop dusters when he would compete at races being held in the Midwest. It was then he knew what he would do when retirement came around.
And that he did, "Digger' Doug grew up on a Midwestern dairy farm and now combines his background of farming and his passion for power sports in his new career, Crop Dusting.
An excavator by trade, Gust built a private runway on his property, purchased a plane, took flying lessons, obtained his license and began flying himself to each of his races. How many people do you know that builds a runway and buys a plane, before he even has his license?
It's quite a story, and one that you will enjoy. So push the PLAY button and listen to Doug himself speak to the highs and lows associated with the very challenging aspects of flying within feet of the ground at high speeds and steep maneuvers. AWESOME!!!
