12-year-old driver Cam Carraway shifts the future of racing into high gear!

Castro Valley, California – 12-year-old Cameron “Cam” Caraway was born to be a race car driver – after all, the word “car” is in his last name!

“I’ve always loved motorsport since I was two years old,” Caraway said.

Cam’s father Raymond Caraway echoed, “At about three years of age, he watched NASCAR frequently and had a real affinity for motorsports more than anything else. On basketball, football, baseball and any kind of ball sports.”

Since she was six years old, Cam has been driving Late Models and Micro Sprints. He has competed in more than 240 races across the country, and has reached the podium in more than 90% of his races.

Cam is California’s first black state champion, winning two driving classes.

“Being the only African American young man, the young man in this part of the country racing at this level, had to learn how to be one, to be safer in himself, and then also learn how to participate, adapt and adapt in environments in which the only person of color might be.” Raymond Caraway said.

“It doesn’t necessarily mean anything negative, it just means he has the opportunity to be who he is, stand out, and be embraced for being who he is,” he added.

Cam plans to continue racing with the ultimate goal of becoming a NASCAR driver.

“I already have a lot of young kids following me, so it’s important that I can be a role model for the next generation of runners, and I’m happy,” said Cam Caraway.
