MEET THE DRIVER:
In 2021, 22 year-old Camden Proud will begin his seventh season of full-time racing at the Oswego Speedway.
An accomplished driver through his teenage years, Proud now serves as the track's Public Relations Director, and competes regularly in the Novelis Supermodified division.
Camden began his career in Quarter Midgets, racing at the Oswego County and Syracuse Quarter Midget Clubs from 2004 to 2012, winning over 50 features and four championships.
In August of 2013, he moved up to a full-sized car, becoming the youngest driver to take laps at Oswego Speedway in its 70 year history, turning speeds of over 120mph in a Small Block Super. He was only 14 years old.
From there, Camden's career took off. At age 15, he took home Pathfinder Bank SBS 'Rookie of the Year' honors while nabbing a podium finish in his fourth career start, winning two heat races, and finishing top ten on eight occasions with his family-owned racer.
A second generation driver, Proud's early success with his 'Proud Chassis' designed and built by two former Speedway racers; his father Tim and Uncle Chris, carried over in four more full-time seasons in the SBS ranks.
In 64 starts spanning 2014-2018, Camden owns five preliminary victories and has finished in the top ten 46 times, collecting seven podium finishes, which have brought an unimaginable FIVE second place efforts.
Finishing 2017 with a third place overall in the championship standings before adding more success to his resume in the 2018 campaign, Proud has proven to be one of the most consistent drivers in SBS history.
In 2019, Camden made the full-time jump to the Novelis Supermodified ranks; winning a heat race, earning a top ten, and seven top fifteens including in the 63rd International Classic.
He once again took home the coveted 'Rookie of the Year Award' in the Supermodified class, becoming one of four drivers in more than seven decades to take those honors in both the Super and SBS divisions.
With the support of Ken's Body Shop as primary sponsor, Camden and Proud Motorsports return to the Supermodified ranks full-time in 2021.
