Casey Currie joins General Tire's off-road program

March 18, 2011

Currie has signed a multi-year sponsorship
with General Tire and will begin racing on the Grabber LT265/75R16 tires
at the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series this weekend.

Born into a motorsports family, Currie started racing motorcycles when
he was just 5 years old and trucks at 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.And his
podium wins get even more impressive; He took home 2nd overall in the
2008 and 2009 King of Hammers, finished second in Round 1 and 2 of the
2010 M4SX Trophy Kart, and took home the championship win at the 2010
TORC series.

"2010 was a monumental year for me," said Currie.  "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.  I see
how hard the Team GT drivers work and I know that the tires they run
work just as hard.  I'm proud to be a part of this great team and start
off the year on the best tires in off-road racing."

Currie will be debuting a new truck design for the 2011 season at the
Lucas Oil Off-Road Race in Chandler, AZ.

In 2011, Currie will race for victories at the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing
Series and the TORC series.  Stay tuned for Casey Currie win updates at and
