Casey Currie Takes Home Back-To-Back Wins At Crandon!

CCCrandon3_690(Anaheim Hills, CA – September 5, 2012) – This past weekend, Casey Currie and team finally returned to the Big House—home of the Amsoil Cup, the Traxxas World Championship, and the largest race in all of off road—Crandon International Raceway in Crandon, WI.

Casey’s return was well worth the wait as he was welcomed with the constant swarm of adorning fans, an energetic crowd of close to 50,000, and a familiar stand atop the podium on both days—a spot where he took the title of World Champion in 2010 as well.

Qualifying 5th on Friday, Casey started Saturday’s race in a land rush start—a traditional start for Crandon Raceway. Casey’s quick shift off the starting line was apparent when the Pro Lite took off to take 2nd position and soon after, 1st, setting the pace from flag to flag and taking the victory.

“Being back in Crandon is a great feeling,” beams Casey after Saturday’s race. “The vibe is great, the amount of people is insane, and you just can’t beat the support in the stands with such a large crowd.”

In Sunday’s race Casey was 6th on the start. As soon as the green flag dropped, Casey hammered down on that throttle, out-braked the competition through the gravel pit, and took a wide outside line in turn three to take the lead in only the first lap.

“Once we reached the head of the pack, we held our line and were able to keep up to 30 car lengths on everyone,” explained Casey. “The truck ran clean, with no problems, and the track was great. On top of it all, the fans were amazing and we can’t wait to do it again next year!”

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.
