Cameron’s career started at the age of 7 when he began racing Quarter Midgets in the central Florida area. He worked his way up through three different classes while learning car control and fundamental driving skills. During those years he won numerous races while simultaneously competing in two classes. At the age of 12, he won the State Championship in the most competitive class in which we competed, Senior Honda. The local track where Cameron competed was closed the following year (after 50 years in the Orlando area!) and he switched his focus to baseball. It wasn’t until after he graduated from high school that he took up racing again.

In 2010, Cameron obtained his Sports Car Club of America license and began competing in SCCA races in the ITS class with an Oldsmobile Achieva before moving up to the GTA class which is managed by V8StockCar.
