Casey Currie

United States United States


Casey was born into a motorsports family that has been in business for over 50 years. What’s more in 2020 he became the first American to win the Dakar on four wheels. Growing up in Anaheim Hills, California, he has always been drawn to anything with an engine. By the age of 5 he was racing motorcycles and by the age of 16 he jumped behind the wheel of his first race truck. Currie’s off-road resume is lined with wins on motorcycles, trucks and buggies in the desert—this one is no stranger to dirt sports. Casey’s career began with wins in the MDR series in his JeepSpeed, taking 2nd in Pro Truck in the Baja 1000 and 3rd in the Class 1 Car in the Baja 500. He expanded to SuperMoto where he quickly proved himself, winning many races and ranking himself 5th Overall in the AMA Lites Class and 1st In team points in his rookie year. Casey then really found a great opportunity in short course off-road racing when he worked a deal with Factory Nissan to drive a pro lite for Art Schmitt. Casey was in development of a new tire and made much progress as a new driver, finishing on the podium in his Rookie Season. At 22, Casey became the youngest team owner in short course and Casey has made the most of it: multiple wins and podium finishes, a short course championship in 2010, a Masterpiece of Metal feature in Dirt Sports magazine, created an 8-truck team for the Monster Jam events, setting history by finishing the Baja 500 Trophy Truck Class in a straight-axle Jeep, among many other accomplishments. By bringing everything in-house, Casey expanded his ability to build multiple race vehicles and custom jeeps for his various racing ventures and increase the number of custom Jeep builds for the many non-race events he attends such as Trail of Missions, Rubicon, Bantam Historic Jeep Festival, Jeep Beach, SEMA battle of the Builders and Off Road Expo. He was chosen as part of the prestigious panel of judges for the Transamerican “Life is Better Off-Road” Award at the 2015 SEMA show and is recognized by the off-road industry as a voice of the young, up-and-coming generation of off-roaders. 2016 brings more races, projects and opportunities than ever for Casey – more Monster Jam events, the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series, both the SCORE Baja 500 and Baja 1000 races, and the Ultr4 King of the Hammers week. Every weekend you can find him either at a race, a show, or living the Jeep lifestyle running trails throughout the Southwest and Baja. A hit on and off the track, Casey has created a loyal following in all areas off-road.
