Casey Currie Comes away from Bark River with 2 Podium finish and a tie for the points lead

Casey Currie Motorsports headed to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, for the TORC series round 3 & 4. This track is one of the fastest tracks in the series with technical S turns, the Cemetery Corner and the biggest jump of the year, the Monster Energy Leap. The track is known to be a drivers track.

Casey Currie started Saturday off by qualifying in the 3rd position giving him the outside pole after the inversion. When the green flag flew he raced to second place, behind Marty Hart. After racing behind Marty for a couple of laps Currie was passed by Andrew Caddell leading into the competition yellow. When the green flag dropped for the final 4 laps Currie drove to a solid 3rd place finish. “I am very impressed with this V8 truck, we are still learning everyday and we will be making lots of changes tonight to come out tomorrow stronger, our truck set up is still not 100% but its getting closer every time we get on the track. The racing was great today and we had no damage to the truck”

Sundays race line up is the top 6 finishers from Saturday inverted, so Casey started outside of the 2nd row. When the green flag dropped there was contact everywhere and Currie ended up 5th coming out of the first corner, after a couple of laps of following Eller, Currie finally made the pass stick putting him 4th for the competition yellow. When the green flag dropped Currie made a quick move around LJ (Luke Johnson) to start chasing down the leaders. After running behind Caddell for 2 laps he pulled off with a problem, moving Currie up to 2nd behind Hart. When the white flag waved Hart was in sight but not close enough to catch, putting Casey 2nd for the day.

The 2nd place finish moves Currie into a tie for the points lead. “We had a rough race in the beginning, I couldn’t find lines to pass and the slippery track didn’t help, but after the competition yellow we started finding the groove and moving forward. We ran out of laps but the truck felt good today, and I am happy with my 2nd place finish.”
