Casey Currie Gunning for $10,000 Jackpot at Sunday’s
LOORS Pro Lite Cup at Lake Elsinore
CORONA, Calif. (October 26, 2013) – The Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORS) season will come to an end this weekend with a return visit to Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park. Following a strong showing at Las Vegas one month ago, Casey Currie and his Monster Energy/General Tire team head into Southern California with on thing on their mind – the $10,000 purse on Sunday’s season-ending Pro Lite Cup.
One year ago, Currie was in position to win the Cup but suffered a big crash that ended his year on a sour note. He’s rebounded since then, establishing himself as one of the top contenders in the Pro Lite division during the 2013 season and introducing the impressive Monster Energy/General Tire Jeep JK that has done nothing but turn heads since hitting the track for the first time in June. With a fast truck and nothing to lose, Currie wants the world to know he’s back and gunning for victory on Sunday.
“We’ve made consistent progress on the Monster Energy/General Tire Jeep JK since we debuted it back in Salt Lake City and this weekend we’re pulling out all the stops in search of nothing but a Cup win,” said Currie. “I’ve had this race circled on my calendar since things ended so abruptly last year and there’s nothing I’d like more than to put the Jeep JK on top of the box and walk away with $10k.”
This weekend marks the second visit to Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park this season for the LOORS Championship. Currie and the rest of the Pro Lite field will bring the season to an end on Saturday afternoon with the final round of the season before the attention turns to the Pro Lite Cup on Sunday for arguably the most exciting and anticipated race of the year.
“The Pro Lite Cup brings out the best in everyone because there’s $10,000 on the line,” said Currie. “The competition is intense and everyone drives all out, which is what I like about it. In order to win you really need be on top your game, so a victory is all the more satisfying.”
Currie will look to build momentum heading into Sunday’s event while he and the Monster Energy/General Tire team continue to work on the Jeep JK to make it a fast and agile as possible once the green flag drops on the Cup.
“We have got one of the best trucks out there and I would love to put a Jeep on top of the box and show everyone what we were able to accomplish with this incredible truck,” concluded Currie. “It’d be the perfect way to bounce back from last year and a big statement to end the season with. I’m excited to get out there and mix it up.”
