Casey Currie Looks to Continue Charge Towards the Front this Weekend as LOORS Visits Reno

 

CORONA, Calif. (August 23, 2013) – After one of his best outings of the season at the previous Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORS) stop at Glen Helen, confidence is high for Casey Currie and his Monster Energy/General Tire team heading into the 11th and 12th rounds of the 2013 season from Wild West Motorsports Park in Reno, Nev., this weekend.

The new Monster Energy/General Tire Jeep JK Pro Lite gets faster every time it takes to the track and with a runner-up effort in its most recent effort, Currie is confident that a win is in the cards this weekend in the “Biggest Little City in the World.”

“My team has made this truck ridiculously fast and it will do pretty much anything I ask of it,” said Currie. “We made some big gains at Glen Helen and now we’re trying to build off of that so that we’re even better this weekend in Reno. There’s still a lot of racing left this season and I’ve got my sights set on continuing our forward progress in the championship.”

After his strong performance in Southern California, Currie moved into fourth in the Pro Lite standings, eight points out of third. With a trio of runner-up finishes and a third place result to his credit this season, Currie has been a fixture in the battle up front. In a series where aggression and physical competition are some of the keys to success, the championship picture can change dramatically on any given lap.

“Everyone is stepping up their game as the season wears on and the competition is getting really intense out there,” said Currie. “Glen Helen produced some of the best racing I’ve ever been a part of and I know that’s going to continue this weekend and beyond. We’re on our game and we’re ready for whatever lies ahead.”

Currie has spent some downtime in the Reno area in preparations for this weekend’s race and the Monster Energy/General Tire Jeep JK will take to the track for the first time on Friday morning for Pro Lite practice. Last season, Currie emerged victorious at Wild West Motorsports Park and the team will use its past success at the facility to their advantage in preparations for each round of racing on Saturday and Sunday.

“We know what it takes to win here, so hopefully that plays in our favor once we get on track. Qualifying on Saturday and Sunday morning will be key in getting a good starting spot for the races, so hopefully we can put this Monster Energy/General Tire Jeep JK up towards the front and make our chances of repeating that victory even better.”

The green flag will drop for the 11th and 12th rounds of the Pro Lite division at 3 p.n. PST on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

Tickets for this weekend’s action are still available through the LOORS website for Saturday, Sunday, or the entire weekend. Fans unable to make it out to the track can keep up to date on everything from Wild West Motorsports Park through Live Timing and Scoring.
