ABOUT CASEY CURRIE:
Casey Currie not only grew up around racing—he lives it. Born into the world of Off-Road and NASCAR through the likes of his Father and Grandfather, the name Currie has been synonymous with racing since before Casey’s time. His penchant for chasing checkered flags was inevitable, and on a dirt bike at the age of 5, Casey began his racing career. If it was meant for driving, Casey has driven it and driven it well. With a long line of podiums and wins in Baja, Super Moto, and Short Course racing, Casey is arguably the most multi-faceted driver in the Off-Road space. Earning his seat with Monster Energy and winning his first Pro Lite Championship in the TORC series in 2010, while still an avid participant in as many other races as he can attend, the California native continues to push the envelope. No matter the field, or class in which he races, Casey’s consistent focus is on how to be faster. “We never go home and just prep—we always go home and make better.”
