Biography

After helping establish a solid foundation for the future of the No. 6 Acura Team Penske ARX-05 Prototype in 2018, Dane Cameron will look to become the next driver to win for Roger Penske’s team during the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season. In 2018, Cameron teamed with motorsports icon Juan Pablo Montoya to score four podium finishes and two pole positions on the way to winning IMSA’s VP Fuels Front Runner Award for leading the most laps over the second half the season.

Cameron joined the Acura Team Penske DPi program after three successful seasons with Action Express Racing, which included winning the 2016 IMSA Prototype Championship. Cameron was also the 2014 GT Daytona series champion, racing for Turner Motorsports. He began his career with Team Penske as the second-winningest driver since the merger of the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) and Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, with 10 victories (overall and class) to his credit.

A native of Glen Ellen, Calif., Cameron has always felt at home at a racetrack as his father, Rick Cameron, is a race engineer with over 40 years of experience in motorsports. For the last three seasons, the two have competed against each other in the Prototype class, with the elder Cameron serving as the lead engineer for the Spirit of Daytona racing team. Growing up with a race-winning engineer as a father, Cameron brings a unique knowledge of car setups and how to maximize performance to his skill set as a top sports car driver.
