Funeral services for former ACT official and team member John “Johnny O” Casey, 74 were held today at John Vianney Church in South Burlington, VT. Casey died suddenly on Sunday, December 27, 2015 following a heart attack.


Casey got his start in racing as a driver, winning numerous races at the former Milton, VT drag strip. He later transitioned to a full-time role with ACT, where he spent many years as a race day official and marketer for Thunder Road and the former ACT Pro Stock Tour.


“Johnny O” remained involved in Thunder Road & ACT racing in his later years. He was a member of son Dan Casey’s Late Model team in the late 1990s and was also the architect of the Late Model team for which Robbie Crouch came out of retirement to drive for in 2008 & 2009.
