About Casey Spradlin

 

 

 

 

 

 

Casey Spradlin, Driver



Birthplace:
Carrollton, Ga
Current Residence: Ranburne, Al

While Casey is pursuing his dream of becoming a professional racecar driver, in the meantime, he is a High Voltage Electrical Engineer for one of the largest wire and cable manufactures in the world, Southwire Company.

Racing Experience: As a second generation drag racer, Casey’s racing experience started at an early age.  After being a crewmember for his dad during his childhood he gained a great knowledge and respect for these high-horsepower beasts of the quarter-mile…its no wonder that once he began driving (as soon as he obtained his drivers license) he burst onto the IHRA scene with early success by securing a runner-up finish at his first IHRA Pro-Am race in the Top Dragster category! The very next year he contended for the IHRA Heat Wave (Div. 2) division championship on the strength of his first win and a great season of finishes, only to come up one round short.  Casey would taste the thrill of victory several more times in Top Dragster before switching classes to Top Sportsman in 2002.  He did not have to wait long for success in this class, as he proved his versatility as a driver with a win at the very first event, the NHRA Lucas Oil Divisional event in Montgomery, Al.   For the 2009 season, Spradlin Motorsports realized their dream of competing in two classes, Top Sportsman and Top Dragster.  Although the workload doubled, Casey proved up to the task, for this season turned out to be the best that he had experienced yet, finding the winners circle 3 times in Top Dragster and, not to be left out, once in Top Sportsman!  One of these wins included his first National event, where he hoisted his first “big” wally at one of only three NHRA national events where Top Dragster was contested at that time, the Jegs NHRA Cajun SportsNationals in Belle Rose, La.  Casey went on to take the 2009 IHRA Heat Wave division Top Dragster championship, realizing his lifelong dream of becoming a drag racing champion!  He also finished runner-up in the NHRA Div. 2 Lucas Oil series that same season. In 2010 and 2011 Casey was able to make it to several finals. For the 2012 season Casey was able to add NHRA Division Champion to his resume.  This Auburn University degreed electrical engineer’s star shine’s even brighter when you find out that his greatest accomplishment is overcoming a handicap of having his foot amputated at an early age and performing these goals with a prosthetic leg.
