The tire man. That is how Casey Kiger describes himself.
1. What is your role on the crew?
I’m the tire guy…I make sure whatever tire pressures or staggers jonboy wants is right and ready for practice, qualifying, and race. I treat those tires like my they’re my kids….no one messes with em! Tires are a huge key factor in racing…very important and a huge responsibility. I feel privileged for him to trust me and my judgment to handle tires.
2. At what point did you get in to racing/become a racing fan?
I’ve been into racing with my dad since I was little….taking me to race museums and to the speedway every chance we got. I was/am a big Richard Petty fan. I have been going to the stadium for close to the last decade…but as a crew member for the last 5 years. I love ANY type of racing…from modifieds to racing handicapped motor scooters in Walmart back in the day…I’ll race just about anything!
3. How did you link up with the Jonathan Brown crew?
I actually got invited to help out his brother bobo last year in the sportsman division…then through him I met jonboy who only raced off and on randomly last year until this year full time when he dubbed me to be his tire guy..we’ve been good buddies on and off the track ever since.
4. When you are not at the race track, what are you doing?
When I’m not at the track I’m either at the shop working on Harley’s or at the motocross track ripping up dirt…I don’t drink or smoke so going out isn’t my thing…some good pizza and a cruise on a Harley is my fix.
