Casey Currie With A Solid Performance At Lucas Oil Rounds 1 & 2

With a brand new Pro Lite truck and an entirely new set up, Casey Currie started off the 2014 Lucas Oil Off-Road season with a 5th place overall finish and the feedback he needed to further tune the new Pro Lite.

Qualifying 7th in Round 1, Casey and the team made some last minute changes to the BILSTEIN shock absorbers and greatly improved the truck from practice, finishing in 6th place.

In Round 2 Casey would qualify in 4th place, and race with the lead pack from beginning to end, finishing 5th for the day.

“The new truck is improving really fast,” says Casey. “We made a lot of passes and it's performing better and better with each run as we continue to get more feedback on the track. Now that we have more data and a base to start from, we'll go home and keep making improvements.”

Building a brand new truck for 2014, Casey and his team decided to take a chance with completely new set up—one they’d never run before.

"We definitely stepped outside the box on this build—we wanted this truck to be different," said Casey. "If this set up works, it will only be to our advantage, and if it doesn't, we can at least say we took the chance and made the attempt with everything we had.”

Next up, Casey and the team head out to Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, UT, April 13-20, 2014. Keep up with them this year on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
