Casey Currie Soars and is Fastest at Glen Helen
CORONA, California (July 19, 2015) – It was a short but fast weekend for Casey Currie at the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) at Glen Helen. After a successful practice on Friday, rare thunderstorms came through the San Bernadino Foothills, postponing Round 9 until Sunday morning and Round 10 had to be rescheduled to the Lake Elsinore event at the end of the season. But even with the track drastically changing with all the rain, Casey had another strong points weekend and put down the fastest lap time of the Pro Lite class.

Friday’s practice allowed Casey’s team to make all the right final modifications to give Casey the best truck for Saturday’s race. But that night, the storms started coming through and it resulted in all of the remaining practice and qualifying sessions to get cancelled. Though Casey was ready to put down fast qualifying laps, the LOORRS officials decided to line the Pro Lite trucks up by their points standings to start the race. However, the weather would continue to not cooperate and Saturday’s race was postponed until Sunday morning.

The Round 9 race on Sunday morning went off without a hitch and Casey was soaring over the competition. This was the largest field that had started a Pro Lite race, so there were several cautions that bunched the trucks back together. Ultimately, Casey found the fast line and put down a lightening-fast lap. Keeping his consistently good finishes and fast times, Casey was looking forward to Sunday nights Round 10. But once again the weather was not in the racers’ favor. More thunderstorms arrived and the LOORRS officials called the Sunday night race, with it to be rescheduled later on in the season.

“It is disappointing when you have such a fast truck ready to go, but we were able to get one race in this weekend and we are still gaining ground in the Championship points. Between the rain, and the largest starting grid for Pro Lite this season, it was a warzone out there, but my team gave me a great truck and it is awesome to be the fastest one out there,” said Currie about the weekend’s events.

Next on Casey’s race schedule is the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Rounds 11 & 12 in Estero Beach, Mexico. This is a brand new track and event this season. With a significant following in Mexico, Casey is sure to have a lot of people cheering him onto victory.
