Anaheim Hills, CA (August 29, 2012) – Entering the uncharted territory of the newly finished Wild West Motorsports park in Sparks, Nevada, Casey Currie and team would lead the race from flag to flag in the Monster Energy General Tire Nissan on Saturday to take home the first ever Pro Lite victory to be won at the new venue.

Starting on the pole after the top-6 qualifier inversion, Casey took the lead early on Saturday.

“With 4 or 5 yellow flags, we really had to fight to keep that lead position,” explained Casey. “At every yellow flag they had to bunch the race back up, putting the competition back on my tail. We had some fast laps and the truck ran perfectly, so we were able to take it to victory.”

Starting three rows back in Sunday’s race, the long straights and tight turns of the new course would conjure up some setbacks, and enough debris to do some damage.

“On Sunday a rock caught our driveshaft hoop and tore it off the frame, resulting in a crushed brake line in the process,” Explains Casey Currie’s Crew Chief, Oren Anderson. “The set back would cost us some time to fix, but Casey got back out on the track and battled from dead last in 29th up to 6th in only four laps, to finish 6th overall.”

ABOUT CASEY CURRIE

 

Racing dirt bikes at age five and off-road trucks by age 16, it’s more than a coincidence that Casey Currie became one of the youngest-ever team owners and drivers on the CORR circuit. Now putting his talents to work in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Series, Casey joined the Pro Lite 2WD Truck class in 2006, scoring his first Championship in 2010 in the Traxxas TORC Series. Casey’s off-road resume is lined with wins on motorcycles, trucks and buggies in the desert—he is no stranger to dirt sports.

In 2012 Casey will race for the championship in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Series in his No. 2 Monster Energy/General Tire/Nissan Pro Lite truck, while mixing it up with UTV races and public appearances in between. When he’s not on the road, building off-road vehicles and drumming up side projects, he’ll take to the dirt with friends—dirt bikes, UTVs, or mountain bikes, he does it all.
