Dane Cameron


Dane Cameron is undoubtedly one of the most talented young American drivers on the racing scene today, arriving at this stage of his career by quickly distinguishing himself on every rung of the road racing ladder.

After a stellar karting career, Cameron made the move to cars in 2005 with immediate success. Competing in the Formula Russell Series as a rookie, he won the title and took six wins along the way. In 2006 he finished runner-up in the U.S. F2000 National Championship.

That fall Cameron won a Team USA Scholarship to participate in the Formula Palmer Audi Autumn Trophy in Europe, which he won.
