Meet the Driver!
21 year-old Camden Proud is entering his seventh season of full-time racing at the Oswego Speedway. An accomplished driver through his teenage years, Proud also serves as the track's public relations director while competing regularly in the Novelis Supermodified division.
Beginning his competitive career in quarter midgets, Proud is a former champion at the Oswego County and Syracuse Quarter Midget Clubs, and has over forty A-Main victories to his credit between the ages of five and fourteen.
In August of 2013, Proud became the youngest driver to take laps at Oswego in its 69 year history, turning average speeds of 114mph at 19.7 seconds in his homebuilt Small Block Super.
Since then, Camden's racing career has taken off. At age 15, he took Pathfinder Bank SBS 'Rookie of the Year' honors while nabbing a podium finish in his third career start, winning two heat races, and finishing top ten on eight occasions with his family-owned racer sponsored by Step One Creative.
The success Proud has seen with the car built and designed by another longtime racer; his father Tim, has been continuously backed up over the past five seasons at Oswego Speedway.
In 64 career starts, Camden has finished in the top ten 46 times, bringing home an impressive total of seven career podium finishes which have included five second place efforts.
Finishing the 2017 season with a third place effort in the standings before adding more success to his resume throughout the 2018 campaign, Proud is one of the most consistent drivers in division history.
For 2019, Camden made a full-time jump to Novelis Supermodified ranks. In his first big block season, Proud won a heat race, earned a top ten, finished the Classic, and took home the coveted Rookie of the Year Award, becoming only the fourth person to win it in both divisions. Proud Motorsports will return to the Supermod ranks full-time in 2020.
