Casey Currie Takes a Win and a Third at Last TORC Event of '09!

Ahh...the winding down of the short course season...

This past weekend marked the final two rounds (#15 & #16) for the Traxxas Off-Road Championship (TORC) series. This marked the first rounds for TORC at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and both days were run at night to take advantage of the cooler weather and accomodate more fans.

Having won Round #2 earlier in the year and achieving a total of three podium spots on the year, Casey Currie and his Nissan Frontier Pro-Lite hoped to finish out the year strong.

And finish strong he did...

In what were extremely dusty and dry conditions Currie was able to fight through the dust to finish the Friday night night race in third. Grabbing one podium spot on the weekend would be a good finish for most racers but Currie was not satisfied.

Casey came back on Saturday to lead the Pro Lite race wire to wire and take home his second win on the season and leaving fans with a solid impression of his Monster Energy clad Nissan Frontier to carry with them throughout the TORC offseason.

The Las Vegas rounds of the TORC series will be broadcast on ABC on Nov. 8th from 1:30-2:30 PM. Don't miss it!
