Riley Fulton jumped on his first dirt bike at the age of three, and six years later he continues to go full throttle. Fulton hit the racing circuit last year for the first time on his 65 C-C dirt bike, and in 2015 alone he won 7 of the 8 series he entered.

"I have quite a lot of first place trophies," said Riley. " It feels good inside like I accomplished something."

Riley says he likes practicing more than racing because he enjoys the opportunity to take on the older racers out on the track.

"I like to pass the older guys," said Riley.  "Anytime I pass them they go and shake their heads because they get passed by a nine-year-old."

Riley puts as much effort into school as he does on the track. The 4th graders report card features nothing but straight A's. One day he hopes to go pro like his favorite motocross star Ryan Dungey, but for now he says he will continue to enjoy the competition and all those first place trophies.
