Cameron knew he wanted to be a racer after being introduced to Drag Racing at a young age by his dad Brian. While growing up in Huntington Beach, CA you would think this beach blonde blue, eyed kid would be destined for a career in surfing but he preferred things with engines that made lots of noise. After some years of success in BMX and Motocross he would soon dedicate his life to the pursuit of a professional driving career. Cameron, is not only passionate about his sport. His outgoing and driven personality allowed him become an actor in nearby Hollywood. Being cast in a principle role for the major Warner Brothers motion picture, Jack Frost starring alongside Michael Keaton and Kelly Preston, allowed Cameron to make his first step on the Drag Racing ladder. With a bit of financial independence after the movie Jack Frost and other acting gigs, he bought his first Jr. Dragster and a lifelong dream started to become a reality.
Recorded his first win and even collected a coveted “Wally,” when he won the NHRA 50th Anniversary Race at Pomona Raceway. A few weeks later he traveled to Denver for the NHRA Jr, Dragster National Championships, where he finished runner up to teammate Patrick Welch, earning Team Famoso Raceway the National Team Championship.
Won NHRA Division 7 event
Took Famoso Raceway track championship with several race wins.
Crowned NHRA Jr. Dragster National Champion in Denver, CO
Moved to Super Comp Dragster, the most challenging class on the NHRA roster.
Outside of racing, Cameron has not neglected his education and has earned an AA degree on his path to a BA in Communications.
Founded Cameron Ferré Motorsports.
Cameron would race his NHRA Super Comp Dragster in the NHRA Lucas Oil Division Seven Series and the Southern California Super Comp Association Series. 2009 was to be a huge learning year. He found out how cut throat world of Super Comp Racing could be. But being green didn’t stop him from going rounds and he made his way to his first ever Super Comp final round. Unfortunately the quest for the win fell short due to an untimely engine explosion. This didn’t get Cameron down, rather it made him dig deeper and work harder.
Cameron continued to impress his peers by starting the season with a semi final finish at one of the biggest and most prestigious races of the year. The NHRA 50th Anniversary Winternationals.
Cameron took the first half of the year off to focus on finishing up his new 2011 M&M Dragster. He debuted his new dragster in early August in Sonoma, CA and used the last 5 races as test sessions in preparation for a hard run at the upcoming 2012 season. He managed to impress many while working the bugs out of his new ride, and won many rounds in the process, exceeding many people and sponsors expectations.
Cameron is expecting 2012 to be his breakout year. 2012 will be a big year for him in many ways. He will be racing 2 cars this season. Cameron will continue to strive for victory again in the Super Comp dragster class but, will also be débuting in the Nostalgia Nitro Funny car ranks later in the year. With Nitro Head Racing behind him 110% he’s planning this to be the biggest year of his career. He cant wait to get his feet wet in the Nitro Ranks and fulfill a life long dream of driving a Nitro Funny Car! . --
This last year was a huge year for Cameron in his pursuit of racing success. He was able to drive for 4 different teams in 2013 in multiple different cars and classes. Most notably he was able to race the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage series in Nostalgia Nitro Funny car for Twig Zeigler racing. Cameron finished in the top 10 in points in his rookie campaign with a final round appearance, 2 semifinals, and a number 2 qualifying effort.
Cam was also able to travel back east and match race the invader nostalgia nitro funny car. Keeping with his nostalgia racing efforts he had the opportunity to race for Legend Jimmy Scott in his Blown alcohol front engine dragster in the NE1 class. “A great experience to drive for such a legend and to be able to learn more about driving different styles of cars”
Rounding out his year Cam also had a full campaign in the Super Comp dragster category on the NHRA division and national series. In the tough competition he rounded out the year 22nd in points in the division 7 and in the top 100 nationally (73rd) 2013 was the biggest year of his career to date and he looks forward to what 2014 will bring!
