MEET THE DRIVER:
In 2022, 23 year-old Camden Proud will take on his eighth season of full-time action at Oswego Speedway, returning to weekly competition in the Novelis Supermodified ranks with the Ken's Body Shop sponsored No. 54.
Camden began his racing career in Quarter Midgets at age 5, racing at the Oswego County and Syracuse Quarter Midget Clubs from 2004 to 2012 and winning 50-plus features and four championships along the way.
In August of 2013, he moved up to a full-sized car built by his father Tim and Uncle Chris, and it was with that he became the youngest driver to take laps in Oswego Speedway's 71 year history at just 14 years old.
Shortly thereafter, Camden's career took off. At 15, he took SBS 'Rookie of the Year' honors after nabbing a podium finish in his fourth start, winning two heats, and finishing top ten eight times with the family-owned racer.
Proud's early success carried over in four more full-time seasons in the SBS class which saw six heat wins, 14 top five finishes, 45 top tens, and seven podiums to the tune of an unimaginable FIVE runner-up efforts.
In 2019, Camden made the full-time jump to the Novelis Supermodified ranks and in his first season won a heat race, earned a top ten finish, and seven top fifteens runs including in the 63rd Budweiser Intl' Classic.
Proud once again took home the coveted 'Rookie of the Year Award;' this time in the Supermodified division, becoming one of just four drivers in seven decades to take those honors in both the Super and SBS divisions.
After competing sparingly throughout 2021, Proud Motorsports is geared up with new equipment and a return to a full-time campaign in 2022.
