Casey Currie finishes season with first and third place podium

Casey Currie in his number two Monster Energy Pro-Lite truck went to the final two rounds of the TORC Off-Road Championship Series finally with only one goal in mind… Winning! Out of the overall points race due to a season full of bad luck and mechanical difficulties, Casey had the final two races to redeem his whole season of disappointment. The pro-lite division is the most competitive division with more top competitors and more entries than any of the other class. On Friday, Casey started outside on the front row. Casey ran clean, even though the track conditions were better for mud bogging then short course off-road. The extremely difficult track conditions caused vehicles to retire at a rapid pace. Casey was able to keep it together running top five for the entire race and ultimately finishing on the podium in third place. Casey’s finish Saturday would prove to be even better. Major track adjustments we’re completed for Saturday’s battle and although the track was less dusty than Friday, the course was riddled with varied combinations of dry and wet spots making aggressive driving around the track ultra tricky. Casey again started outside on the front row and got off to a great start pulling away from the field. The tire and gearing adjustment made by Casey and his team proved to be on point. Casey pulled away from the field in a seemingly effortless manor. Casey placed some distance between himself and the rest of the pack until a full course caution was call after Randy Eller had severe crash on the front straight. This brought the field back up to Casey’s back bumper. Casey again got off to a great start and was able to maintain a dominant lead until the mandatory caution. After the restart, Marty Hart fought hard to get around Casey but to no avail. Casey took first place in the final race of the TORC season in a dominating performance.
