Chase Cummings, 6, a local Escalon youth who has been riding and racing motorcycles since he was two-years-old, has just completed a stellar season.
The son of Josh and Jana Cummings of Escalon, young Chase rode a dirt bike before he was able to ride a bicycle without training wheels. Chase is an American Motorcycle Association (AMA) six-year-old this year and has had an impressive season with multiple wins at the Sacramento Raceway, Save Mart Center and the Stanislaus County Fair.
He had a fifth place finish on Pro Day and third place finish on Amateur Day at the Amsoil AMA Amateur National Arenacross held at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, which gave him an automatic bid to race at the Arenacross National Championship in Las Vegas. Chase rides a Cobra 50 motorcycle and is finishing up his season, taking two impressive wins at the recent Stanislaus County Fair where he took first place in the 50cc 4-6 age group and also first place in the 50cc 7-8 age group (which was his first race in the older age class).
Chase is sponsored by Modesto Honda Kawasaki, KTM of Modesto and Cycle Gear of Modesto and is part of the Cycle Gear Racing team.
He is going into the second grade at Dent Elementary School and loves school. He is also involved in baseball and wrestling. Chase practices motocross at his family track at his home in Escalon with his five-year-old brother, Carter, who also races at practice tracks in Patterson and Manteca. Chase’s dream is to one day race professionally in supercross and outdoor motocross.
