Solid Weekend In Utah For Currie

Solid Weekend In Utah For Currie

Drivers and their crews made their way North for rounds 7&8 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Little did they know that they would be making their way into a war zone. This weekends races were held at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, just outside of Salt Lake City. With a tight course that provided countless action packed moments for fans that packed the stands full. Summertime is in full swing in Tooele and with 90 degree heat filling the air and the hot sun beating down on the course, this would cause the track to dry out quickly and leave dust hanging in the air, which provided fans a course that turned into a war zone just laps into the races.

Currie started round 7 in the back of the pack in his #2 Monster Energy/Jeep ProLite. 14 laps of full throttle racing gave Currie enough time to make up numerous positions. Dust in the air and a class full of 20 trucks that are so close in time, didn’t make this an easy task. Currie crossed the finish line with a 9th place finish.

“Starting in the back means you have to work harder for that win. Everyone else is looking for the same thing and this is when you prove that your truck can handle the constant thrashing and you as a driver can stay focused.” Stated Currie after Saturdays race.

Round 8 was set for another hot day, but with a breeze rolling through the valley, this would help clear the dust quickly from the track during the races. The team made some changes to the truck for Sundays qualifying session and the changes helped Currie qualify in the 4th row. The start of the race would have Curries BFGoodrich tires hooked up and fighting to make up positions with hopes of making it to the podium. With all trucks finding it hard to make a clean pass, the race didn’t see many position changes. One full course caution gathered all the trucks back up but once the green flag dropped again it was still a single file race all the way to the checkered flag. Currie finished round 8 in 6th place.

Currie and his team will be making large changes to the #2 ProLite in July along with numerous testing sessions. Rounds 9 & 10 will be held under the lights of Glen Helen Raceway where it is guaranteed to have a sold out venue.
