Anaheim Hills, CA (August 9, 2012) – Casey Currie and team rolled out the Monster Energy General Tire Nissan Pro Lite only a short distance from home for Lucas Oil Off Road’s Rounds 9 & 10 at Glen Helen Raceway. Motivated and hungry after their 1-2 win in Chicago, the team brought to the table the intention to win, and earned two respectable podium finishes.
Qualifying 7th on Friday, Casey would start four rows back in Saturday’s race, demonstrating his natural-born ability to move his way through the field.
“Once the green flag dropped, we quickly made our way to second,” described Casey of Saturday night’s race. “After the midway caution we just pushed as hard as we could, basically battling our way for first, but I couldn’t make the pass; the track was really tight, really technical. In every class, the pole-sitter finished first in every single race, so there really was no passing that number one position.”
In Sunday’s race, Casey would start in 7th position once again—another opportunity to show his fans what he does best—strategically maneuver through that field.
“First half of the race we were having an issue getting the truck to hook up due to some ignition issues,” notes Casey. “After the midway caution, the track dried up and the ignition problems were affecting us much less, enabling us to pick our way up to third place. We are excited the truck is running fast, and are looking to gain that additional spot next time for a win. “
