Pint-Sized Powerhouse Is Local Inspiration

Mike Camunas

At just 10 years old, Elijah Sumner is proving that anything is possible if you set your mind to it! The 2021 65CC Championship winner for his age division, is an elementary school student who spends his free time working hard at pursuing his dreams of becoming a champion in his hobby. Sumner’s hard work has earned him a handful of sponsorships, including local business in his Florida hometown. 

“I like to compete with my friends, just trying to win, plus just being on the track,” Sumner says. “I remember being out here when I was little (at age 4) and it was fun, and it’s where I learned the competitiveness.”
