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.
In 2007 Cameron competed in Star Mazda and won the title with three race wins. He also made his Sportscar debut, driving for Chip Ganassi Racing in a Daytona Prototype. He graduated to Formula Atlantic in 2008 - scoring 2nd place from pole on debut. Cameron switched his focus full time to sportscars in 2009, contesting the Rolex Series in the GT class in the Racers Edge Mazda RX-8. He scored six top 10 finishes whilst driving with 10 different co-drivers.
By 2011, Cameron began to make his mark - scoring pole, fastest race lap, most laps led and victory for Genoa Racing in LMPC at Sebring. He also finished seventh in the GT points for Dempsey Racing in a Mazda RX-8. In 2012, Cameron scored his first Rolex Series GT win en route to finishing 6th in the GT points for Team Sahlens. Cameron also had two ALMS starts with Dempsey Racing in LMP2 and recorded the fastest LMPC lap at Sebring.
For 2013, Cameron graduated to the Daytona Prototype class with Team Sahlens on a full-time basis. Cameron’s speed was impressive, scoring pole and completely dominated the race at Road America before suffering a driveshaft failure. He also set pole and led laps in the final ever Rolex Series race at Lime Rock Park. In the ALMS, Cameron was drafted in by the PR1 squad for the final four races to team with Mike Guasch. Cameron’s pace was immediate. He captured three poles and combined with superb race stints enabled his co-driver to clinch the LMPC championship.
For 2014, Cameron dominated the GT Daytona championship aboard Turner Motorsports BMW Z4 in the Tudor United Sportscar Championship - taking the driver's championship - as well as driving in the Continental Tire Sportscar Championship for Tim Bell Racing.
