CORONA, California (April 27, 2015) – With the Lucas Oil Off Road Series Rounds 1 & 2 completed, Casey was looking to have a consistent performance in Rounds 3 and 4 to keep his upward momentum going. And he did just that. Fast in practice on Thursday and in qualifying on Saturday, he turned in great race performances and is sitting in the top 5 in the largest class in all of short course.

Thursday's practice sessions were a showing of how well Casey was prepared for the weekend. He turned in some of the fastest times of the day and was looking dialed in for Friday's race. 

With no practice or qualifying due to rain, the Pro-Lite class started in order of points putting Casey in 5th. The track was very wet and with the largest racing class in all of short course, there was a lot of carnage for Casey to drive through. But he turned out another solid race and was ready for Saturday.

"There was a lot of trucks out there, some more experienced than others…and with the track as wet as it was, there was a lot to get around. Overall, I think we had another solid race without much damage to the truck and I am expecting an even better performance on Saturday," said Casey after Friday's race.

Qualifying on Saturday confirmed that Casey had a contender by qualifying on 0.7 seconds behind the fastest truck. He was looking to maintain that upward trajectory and have a top 5 finish. And once again with a full field of trucks, Casey drove through the crowd and finished 4th.

Casey commented that, "My goal was to have another top 5 finish weekend and we accomplished just that. I am ranked 5th in the largest class of trucks in ALL of short course. This year is about being consistently good…keeping our momentum strong throughout the year and staying at the top. With such a strong team and truck we are looking good."

The next race will be at Currie's home track, Lake Elsinore, and Casey is looking to put in another consistently fast weekend at the LOORRS Rounds 5 & 6 on May 30 and 31, 2015.
