Cameron Dodson Car Accident, Cameron Dodson Dies At Age 33December 21, 2021
Cameron Dodson Death, Cause Of Death – Cameron Dodson age 33 sadly passed away from a car accident on December 19, 2021. He was a three-time USAC Silver Crown winner and 2007 series Rookie of the Year. I just received one of the worst phone calls that any parent would have to make.
Tom Dodson just called me to say that Cameron was killed in an auto accident last night. Having walked in those shoes, my heart breaks for Tom and Cindy now. I have no useful words, only that I’m sorry.
For those of you that knew him, no introduction is needed.
For those who never met him, Cameron was a quarter midget prodigy, winning races from coast to coast. He started out as a very shy boy and became bigger than life behind the wheel as his career bloomed.
Please remember the Dodson family in your prayers. And please take a moment to hug your kids, parents, grandparents, pets, whatever. It may be your last chance…. I’ll update as more information becomes available.
The Greenfield, Ind. native was a force on the pavement throughout his relatively brief USAC career, in which he made a lasting mark.
He made 23 career Silver Crown starts with his debut coming in 2007 at the age of 18. That year, he raced to the pole at New Hampshire International Speedway, then scored his first career win in the season finale Copper World Classic at Arizona’s Phoenix International Raceway, winding up the season sixth in the point standings and securing Rookie of the Year honors.
A serious road accident sidelined his racing ventures for a short while, but Dodson returned with authority by racing to victory for the third and final time, defending his Iowa victory with another at Iowa in 2009 in which he drove the highest car number to ever grace Silver Crown victory lane – No. 991. All three of his Silver Crown wins came for the Carl Edwards/RE Technologies team.
Dodson also made 11 careers USAC National Sprint Car starts, finishing a best of 6th at Ohio’s Toledo Speedway for Keith Kunz Motorsports. He also made four career USAC National Midget feature starts, the best of the bunch coming at Indiana’s Salem Speedway with a 9th place result for Kunz in 2006.
After a near-decade hiatus, Dodson made his return to USAC Silver Crown racing in 2019, finishing 20th at Indiana’s Lucas Oil Raceway, dropping out 30 laps into the 100-lapper after overheating forced him to the sidelines.
Dodson also made waves in winged pavement sprint car competition, scoring 17 career wins with the Auto Value Super Sprints. He also made four career NASCAR Truck Series starts in 2006 at the age of 17.
