Casey then moved into single-seater open wheel racing, appearing in Indy Lights in a team run by his father, which proved a success and it saw him move up to Champ Cars in 2000. Casey's next stop was NASCAR and was in the discipline from 2003 until 2017 with the occasional sportscar one-off in addition. Hasn't raced in 2018.
