After years of teasing a breakthrough, Cameron Smith has established himself as a multi-time Progressive AFT podium finisher. Smith went a long way toward indicating his potential in the series in 2017, just his third season as a professional. He improved from qualifying for just a single Main in 2015, to scoring a late-season top five in 2016, to racking up eight finishes of sixth or better in ‘17. Highlighted by three top fours, Smith finished sixth overall in the deep and competitive 2017 Parts Unlimited AFT Singles championship. Smith showed plenty of speed when in the groove over the following several seasons, including a fifth-place run at the Minnesota Mile in 2018 and a sixth-place performance at the Volusia Half-Mile in 2020. He at last earned his first career Progressive AFT podium finish in 2021, finishing as the runner-up in the Mission Production Twins Main at the OKC Mile I. He then did it again with a second-place finish at the New York Short Track I just four races later. Smith proved that his performance in ‘21 was no fluke in 2022, guiding Yamaha and Royal Enfield racebikes to the podium during the course of a sixth-ranked Mission Production Twins season. The Pennsylvanian started racing when he was six years old. He looks to Mission SuperTwins pilot Brandon Robinson as a mentor, and like Robinson, Smith is an avid bicyclist.
