Anaheim Hills, Nov. 6, 2012: Although the first visit to Firebird this year wasn’t the way Casey Currie intended on launching the Lucas Oil season, the team pulled together to take 8 podium finishes this season. Entering the last race of the season 5th in points, and adding a 2nd place podium finish to the list, Currie would finish 4th overall in the Championship with 9 Lucas Oil podiums for the year.

“I am excited to finish off the season on a high note,” Casey stated. “We had many downs early in the year but finished strong at the end. I owe a huge thanks to my awesome team, family, and fans for all the support and success this year."

Sunday’s cup race was the long awaited, no-holds barred race between Pro Lites and Buggies, all driving in a win-big or crash-big state of mind. Starting strong, and moving quickly from 14th to 3rd, 4 laps from the finish Casey would end in a tangle of trucks and a cloud of dirt and flying parts as RJ Anderson set up for turn 1 too early, crashing into the side of him mid-air. Sending Casey into a barrel roll side by side with Anderson, the two trucks rolled then flipped end-over-end, tangling with a close-following Brian Deegan.

“My truck was heavily damaged and I was beat up. With a red flag out, the safety crews did an amazing job getting me taken care of. I am bummed that we didn’t win that cup, but we had the speed to win and I am excited to come back in a big way in 2013.” WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

Casey did however manage to take home a Cup win in at a 10th of the scale—he both qualified and finished first in Sunday morning’s Team Associated RC10 race with other fellow drivers and their signature RC trucks.
