Pro Lite short-course driver Casey Currie, known for sweeping the TORC championship weekend at Crandon last year and taking home the series Pro Lite title, has signed a multi-year sponsorship with General Tire.

He will begin racing on Grabber LT265/75R16 tires at the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series this weekend. He’ll also be competing on the TORC circuit.

Born into a motorsports family, Currie started racing motorcycles when he was just five years old, moving up to trucks at age 16.

Taking home his first major win in 2003, Currie championed the MDR series in his JeepSpeed truck. In 2004, Currie switched to Pro Truck and Class 1, taking second in Pro Truck at the Baja 1000 and third in Class 1 at the Baja 500.

Currie clinched second place overall in the 2008 and 2009 King of Hammers, finished second in Round 1 and 2 of the 2010 M4SX Trophy Kart, and achieved the championship of the 2010 TORC series.

“2010 was a monumental year for me,” he recounts. “I set out to win the TORC series, and that’s exactly what I did. This General Tire sponsorship is the perfect way to start off an even better 2011,” he adds.

“I see how hard the Team GT drivers work and I know that the tires they run work just as hard,” Currie continues. “I’m proud to be a part of this great team and start off the year on the best tires in off-road racing.” He’ll be debuting a new truck at the upcoming Lucas Oil Off-Road Race in Chandler, Ariz.
