"It's not like you can hop on your bike and go on I-10 at 100 mph," he said.

When it comes to race day, it's all about making quick decisions and trusting your judgment, said Dumas.

"I feel prepared on race day because in a lot of aspects of my life I have to make decisions under pressure," he said. "On the track, you can't second-guess yourself, there's no room for error. It all happens at such a fast rate."

Even though Dumas achieved his goal of winning a race, he doesn't plan on stopping yet.

"My daughters keep me active," he said. "I'll keep doing it as long as it's fun."

When he's not racing on the track, Dumas rides four-wheelers with his daughters on their farm in Ponce de Leon.

Although it won't be for a few more years, Dumas anticipates that his wife, Paula, will be teaching the girls how to drive.
