Dane Cameron hasn’t raced a formula car since 2008.  He’s been spending his time in the fender-ranks driving both a Grand-Am GT and Daytona Prototype car.

Clearly, his time away from open-wheel racing hasn’t had any effect on his ability to pilot a formula car.  He dominated a 35-car field today at Infineon Raceway in the first of two Formula Car Challenge events this weekend. Patrick O’Neill made a solid run through the field after starting in the back due to a DQ in qualifying yesterday.  He finished second overall.  Cole Morgan, who is a regular in the F2000 Championship, followed suit driving from 11th to 3rd in the 14-lap event.

“It’s been a couple years,” said Cameron, referring to his formula car endeavors. “Doing the sports car stuff, I don’t always get to start a race, so I had to remember how to do a rolling start,” he continued with a smile. “It’s good fun to drive a formula car, there is nothing that can beat what these things can do.”

Michael Guasch finished fourth with Paul LaHaye rounding out the top-five in the Pro Formula Mazda division.

In the standard Formula Mazda division Alan McCallum, of Houston, TX., found his way to victory lane lapping nearly a full second faster than his nearest competitor.  Doug Peterson and Joe Colasacco rounded out the podium.
