Cameron Ferré was born and raised in Huntington Beach, California. It was there he was introduced to surfing and racing by his father Brian Ferré. After a years of BMX and surfing, Cameron began attending the NHRA events at the Fairplex in Pomona and became infatuated with Drag Racing. Little did he know he’d one day be standing in the winner circle of that very track.
During a trip to the track, Cameron got his first glimpse of the Junior Drag Racing Display and knew exactly what he wanted to do. However, a nine year old going 85 MPH made more sense to Cameron than it did to mom. After learning more about the sport the family supported Cameron’s new passion for racing. But Cameron was going to have to mow a lot of lawns to purchase a race car. And then fate stepped in.
Cameron quickly found himself living in Lake Tahoe working alongside Michael Keaton and Kelly Preston. An incredible experience and a link to his future in a dragster.
Cameron was able to purchase his first Jr. Dragster and logged 6 years in the car, 25 event wins and 1 Junior Drag Racing National title.
2007 – Present: Cameron has now raced full-time on the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series divisional and national circuit for 8 years. He’s racked up dozens of round wins, quarterfinals, semifinals and finals round births.
2012: Cameron licensed in the prestigious Nostalgia Funny Car class. Cameron rounded out the year by winning his first NHRA Auto Club World Finals in the highly competitive Super Comp Dragster class in Pomona, California.
2013: After winning a World Finals championship, Cameron was hired by two additional teams to drive in other drag racing series’. Most notably, he drove for drag racing legend Twig Zeigler. Cameron drove Twig Zeigler’s nostalgia nitro funny car in the Hot Rod Heritage series across the U.S. and Canada. During that time he racked up a final round appearance, 2 semi finals, and a number 2 qualifier in just five races. Cam finished top 10 in the series points in just his first year in a professional class.
2014: 2014 was the biggest year in Cameron’s career. While he continued to impress in super comp dragster, Cam was also hired by Miersch Racing to drive their A/Fuel dragster. A huge step for Cameron, as A/Fuel dragster is one of the fastest and prestigious classes in the NHRA. In just a 5-race campaign Cameron impressed again reaching 2 final rounds, most recently the NHRA world finals in Pomona, CA, a semi final finish and set top speed of two meets. He finished an impressive 8th in points, despite only running five events.This past year boosted Cameron’s popularity within the NHRA. His natural driving ability, and well-liked fan favorite personality have showed he has what it takes to be one of the top drivers in the NHRA. His success has him primed to be picked up by one of the top teams in the professional Top Fuel and Funny Car categories.
