Could it possibly be "Danny, the Champion of the World". I've not read this but the review on Amazon sounds somewhat like what you are writting about. Otherwise perhaps this is a story in one of his book of short stories.

I've read a couple of Dahl's books in the past, but this one is not familiar. I've read Charlie and the Chocolate Factoy/Great Glass elevator, James and the Giant Peach, Danny the Champion of the World, and Matilda, and so it was none of those ones. Doesn't really help you a lot, I guess, but it can't hurt to eliminate a few possibilities.
