Casey was born into a motor sports family. With a family that has been in business for over 50 years building high performance rear end’s for most off road and NASCAR style racing. Growing up in Anaheim Hills, California he has been drawn to anything with a motor. By the age of 5 he was racing motorcycles and by the age of 16 he jumped behind the wheel of his first race truck. Currie’s off-road resume is lined with wins on motorcycles, trucks and buggies in the desert—this one is no stranger to dirt sports.
In 2003 Casey won the MDR series in his JeepSpeed and won many races along the way. In 2004 Casey switched to a Pro Truck and Class 1 taking 2nd in Pro Truck in the Baja 1000 and 3rd l In the Class 1 Car in the Baja 500.
In 2005, Currie moved to SuperMoto and quickly proved himself, winning many races and ranking himself 5th Overall in the AMA Lites Class and 1st In team points in his rookie year.
In 2006 Casey worked a deal with Factory Nissan to drive a pro lite for Art Schmitt. Casey was in development of a new tire and made much progress as a new driver, finishing on the podium in his Rookie Season.
In 2007 Currie made a move to become the youngest team owner in Short Course. Being 22 and owning his own team put a huge responsibility on his shoulders. And the risk was worth the reward. Finishing 2nd Overall in Points and being constantly on the podium with 7 Podiums and 11 top 4 finishes.
In 2008, Currie created his own Pro Lite and is now building prepping and manufacturing everything in house at Currie Racing. With all the bugs worked out of the new truck Currie finished the season off with 1 win and 4 Podium finishes. Currie also finished 2nd in the King of the Hammers the biggest rock crawl of e year.
In 2009 Casey went on to race TORC series finishing the season with multiple podiums and 2 wins. In 2009 Casey also finished runner up in the King of the Hammers.
In 2010 Currie took huge risks by going to the new v8 pro light. Testing many times Currie quickly dialed in his new pro lite that was also a Master Piece of Metal in Dirt Sports. He finished off the year with a Championship, 4 wins and finishing on the podium every event but 2. Casey also road the Rip to the Tip a 1500 mile dirt bike ride from Tecate to Cabo.
2011 was all about short course for Casey, and he pushed it to the limits, running in both the Torc Traxxas and Lucas Oil Off-Road Series. On top of that he made appearances at the Nissan Production plant, raced in King of the Hammers, participated in the Kawasaki Team Green 30-year Celebration, and appeared on MTV’s Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory.
In 2012 Casey raced for the championship in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Series in his No. 2 Monster Energy/General Tire/Nissan Pro Lite truck, while mixing it up with UTV races and public appearances in between. Finishing 4th in the Championship, he was ready to tackle 2013 right out of the gate.
When he’s not on the road, building off-road vehicles and drumming up side projects, he’ll take to the dirt with friends—dirt bikes, UTVs, or mountain bikes, he does it all.
And Casey was gunning it from the start of 2013. With 5 podium finishes and several top 5’s Casey was looking good on the short course track. But as it is in racing, it ended up being an up and down season. Luckily, Currie kept to his broad range of interests and ran the King of the Hammers and participated in the Monster Jam Demo in Las Vegas. A growth year for Casey, he was ready to take on 2014.
In 2014, Casey took on more projects than he had ever done before. Continuing to race in the the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing series, he also took on the King of the Hammers, the Baja 1000, Monster Jam and the battle of the Big House in Crandon, WI. On top of his full race schedule, Casey also took on building multiple Jeeps for various companies for the 2014 SEMA show where his presence was felt in every building (and outside) of the show. And he didn’t stop there.
There was no break for Casey between race seasons, he kept the throttle down and has pushed hard into the 2015 season where he has run the Monster Jam, King of the Hammers, run in the Lucas SHort Course series, and made history by running a straight axle Jeep in the Trophy Truck Class of the Baja 500. He has Run the Trail of Missions down the Baja Peninsula and participated in Historical events such as the Bantam Historic Jeep Festival in Butler, PA. Every weekend you can find him either at a race, a show, or living the Jeep lifestyle running trails throughout California.
