Winner of the inaugural Cross Country Chase, rider #99, Todd Cameron returns to defend his title in the 2021 Mini Chase: Secrets of the Ozarks.
Todd is no stranger to racing; if it has wheels, he will race it! Bicycles, modern and antique motorcycles, Motocross, 125cc shifter karts, road race cars, off road cars, antique trucks, 24 hours of lemons cars, a few years in NASCAR, hot rodded electric cars, and solar cars.
Todd’s energy and passion comes from being born into a family of racing and collector enthusiasts. His grandfather, JD John Cameron, was a rugged hero known for his lifelong passion for classic American motorcycling. He purchased, restored, and raced his reputable collection. He was one of the founding fathers of the Boozefighters who finished a similar challenge in the 1984 Great American Race on a 1926 Harley-Davidson two-cam JDH and Flexi side car which was noted in many publications at that time.
Todd competed in the 2018 Motorcycle Cannonball on a 1916 Harley-Davidson JD which has been raced in his family since the 1940’s. He is slated to compete again in 2021 event from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan to South Padre Island, Texas this September on a 1909 Indian motorcycle
Todd is a retired Mechanical Engineer living in California and spends most of his time fabricating, tinkering, and racing. Todd says it is an honor to ride and show these historic Americana classic motorcycles across the US.
Todd won the 2019 Cross Country Chase on a motorcycle he had only owned for a week, a 1930 BSA Sloper. Becoming one with the motorcycle, earning consistent scores on the daily quizzes, and a handicap riding the oldest bike the event allowed put Cameron in first place.
He says that he enjoys the solo venture of man and machine against the miles without any crew support, which is unique to this event.
This year he is competing on a 1930 Velocette KSS with hopes of bringing the #1 plate home once again.
