Like all school kids, Ciaran Naran is enjoying his summer vacation and doing all the things he loves to do: hanging out with his friends, playing soccer and riding his mini dirt bike.
Although he might be on a near-three month vacation from the classroom, he still has an action-packed schedule to follow.
Still, it's all fun and games for the 10-year-old Huntington Beach resident.
"I'm having a blast," Naran said. "I'm really busy, but I love what I'm doing. It's a lot of fun."
Naran has been juggling several responsibilities daily, whether it be practice sessions or workouts with the Huntington Beach Junior Lifeguards program. On Friday, he'll take a break from it all and leave Surf City with his family to embark on a 1,963-mile trip across country for a pair of motocross competitions.
Naran, one of the top riders in his age group, first will compete at the National Motocross Assn. Ponca City Grand National Championships that begin Monday in Oklahoma and run through July 31. After that, he's off to Tennessee for Loretta Lynn's 2010 Amateur National Motocross Championships, which runs Aug. 2 through 7 on the grounds of Lynn's ranch.
