Anaheim Hills, CA (June 29, 2012) – The sun and wind were out in full force, beating down and whipping through the paddocks at Round 7 & 8 of Lucas Oil Off Road at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. Unrelenting were the conditions, and so was the determination of Casey Currie as he charged through the field all weekend. Starting toward the middle of the pack both Saturday and Sunday, Casey would suffer some setbacks, giving him a chance to display some of his raw talent and driving skill for the crowd as he powered his way through multiple competitors to finish 5th on Saturday and attain up to position 2 on Sunday, final results still pending.
“We had a great jump at the start and coming into the 1st turn I was T-boned, resulting in a flat tire,” commented Casey of Saturday’s race. “I pitted to have the tire changed and re-entered the race in the back of the field. We were dead last, but put our heads down to work our way through 18 trucks to finish 5th.”
Running in the top 3 after starting 9th on Sunday, the door-to-door sport of short course racing would get technical when contact was made with only several laps to go.
“We had a great race going, running in 4th at half-way,” Casey went on to explain. “We came into the 3rd turn after the restart, and close racing resulted in slight contact with another driver. We charged hard after that to get in the top 2 spot before the race was over and are now waiting on Lucas officials for results.”
