CORR's Pro Lite division is sometimes used as a stepping stone by drivers who ultimately want to go head-to-head in CORR's big-boy Pro 2 and Pro 4 fullsize classes. Casey's end game is a bit different and hearkens back to the days of the Mickey Thompson Off-Road Grand Prix Series, which toured U.S. stadiums for nearly two decades. Casey's hoping for stadium racing's resurgence. "I'd like to someday race in front of 100,000 fans, and that will happen in the stadiums. Pro 2 and Pro 4 trucks are amazing, but they need more room to run than you can find in a stadium. Pro Lite is the only type of truck that will make it back into the stadiums."
Pro Lite also has a big youth factor. "Being a young gun, a Pro Lite fits my age group better. It helps me relate better to my own Y generation. I can talk to someone and say, 'Hey, I drive a Nissan Frontier,' and that person will probably say, 'Yeah, me too!'"
Ray and Casey Currie turned a few dozen Dzus quick-release tabs.
Casey's first season on the CORR Pro Lite circuit was a series of ups and downs, ending in a solid top-10 slot after 16 fast and furious rounds held in Chula Vista, California; Bark River, Michigan; and Crandon, Wisconsin. "My highlight was getting on the podium in Chula Vista using an all-terrain Nitto Terra Grappler tire. That hasn't been done by anyone for the past three years. My worst moment was when I crashed at Bark River and the safety crew flipped me onto my roof and dragged me while upside down. Hot oil was running down my legs. It was awful."
If you have a chance to experience a CORR race, keep your eyes peeled for Casey Currie. He's the fast young gun with an eye on the stadiums.
