Professional Accomplishments

Cameron started his automotive career as an ASE Certified parts specialist while finishing up his Bachelor’s degree. After completing college, Cameron felt the pull of the garage, and started working as a tech at an independent VW shop. Out of a desire to learn more and improve his technical abilities, he decided to complete the Automotive Technology program at Guilford Technical Community College. It was during this time that he became involved with SCCA road racing and built a 1993 VW Golf for the SCCA Improved Touring class. Cameron’s career carried him from owning his own shop to working in an independent Porsche/VW/Audi shop, where he got involved with professional road racing. Cameron built and campaigned as crew chief several VW models in Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car. Cameron led his team to “Crew of the Year” and driver to “Rookie of the Year” during the 2011 Pirelli World Challenge season. In 2014, as team manager for Rick Ware Racing’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo team, Cameron managed and prepared three Lamborghini Gallardo racing cars, and the team enjoyed several podium finishes and wins, as well as earning one driver “Rookie of the Year” honors. Out of a desire to do some competitive driving himself, Cameron decided to leave the world of professional racing behind, (after all, if you’re crewing for someone else’s car you can’t drive your own). He found a home as Shop Foreman for a non-profit where he provides transportation for economically vulnerable individuals and families. This has allowed Cameron time to do racing of his own, as well as rekindle his race car data acquisition and ECU tuning business, raceconover.com. Cameron enjoys automotive instruction and is inspired by seeing young people find a rewarding career in the automotive industry.
