Cameron Parsons began his racing career at the age of eleven, driving go karts in the Kerman Kart Club, near his hometown of Hanford, California. He quickly moved up through the faster classes as he gained experience and driving skill. He won a series points championship, took multiple championship podiums, and set the track record in the 80cc Shifter class during his participation at Kerman Kart Club. Once Cameron was old enough at age sixteen, he moved into the world famous 125cc ICC Shifter class and began racing at a regional level. From here, he raced in the World Karting Association Manufacturer’s Cup West series and won the points championship back to back in 2005 and 2006. In 2006 and 2007, Cameron raced in the ProKart Challenge series, which boasted some of the largest fields of karts in the nation. In this series, he took third in the points championship both years. In his final year of dedication to karting, Cameron raced with Willow Springs Kart Club in 2008 and took the series championship.
While racing go karts, Cameron was determined to move into full size race cars as soon as he could. During his season with Willow Springs Kart Club, Cameron attended the Skip Barber Racing School to further hone his skills and prepare him for formula car racing up ahead. Starting in 2009, he began his first year in a formula car, racing Standard Formula Mazda in the Formula Car Challenge series. He was quick to learn the car and tracks, and was able to earn a fourth place finish in the points championship for that year. In the following year, Cameron took multiple podium finishes and won the points championship.
Cameron is known to drive with a balance of safety and aggression; he focuses on speed and high finishes while maintaining on track sensibility. Within the entire time that he has been driving formula cars, he has finished each race that he started. While keeping a level head on track, he also maintains a positive and outgoing attitude off track. He works to keep good relationships with other drivers, crew personnel, and race fans. This was recognized in 2009 when Formula Car Challenge awarded him the “Spirit Award.”
While keeping up with the fast paced world of auto racing, Cameron has been able to work at continuing his education at the same time. In 2010, he completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems from Chapman University, and then later completed his Master of Science degree in Information Technology from California State University Fullerton in 2013.
