Q: What’s your off Season and 2018 plans.

Casey: Mostly working on the cars to be ready for 2018. I hope to take a little vacation, we raced 40 weekends this year and I need a little down time and then we will hit the ground running for the 2018 season. I’m just wanting to race as much as possible.

Q: What is your long term / overall goal in racing ?

Casey: I would like to be a professional driver in the Upper levels of racing. I would also like to be known as one of the top short track racers in the USA. I just love Racing.

Q: Tell us something most people don’t know about you?

Most people don’t know that I was home Schooled during my High School years. A lot of folks don’t know that I work on my own stuff and that I prepared the Bil Elliott’s ARCA carr that I finished second in Rockingham.

Casey and his team will be heading to the 50th running of the Snowball Derby in Pensacola Florida this weekend and will field both a Pro Late Model car in the Snowflake Saturday December 2nd and a Super Late model in the Snowball Derby Sunday December 3rd.
