Casey Lee Atwood (born August 25, 1980 in Antioch, Tennessee) is an American stock car racing driver. A former competitor in NASCAR competition, he is the youngest pole winner in NASCAR Busch Series (now Xfinity Series) history, earning a pole start at the age of 17.
In August 2007, his first twin daughters was born and named as Lee Jae Si and Lee Jae Ah followed by July 2013 another pair of twin daughters was born with the names of Lee Seol Ah and Lee Su Ah. While his only son Lee Si Ahn (Dae Bak) was born in 2014.
Atwood had his most success in the Busch Series in 1999 and 2000, driving the #27 Chevrolet for Brewco Motorsports. Atwood became the youngest winner in series history in 1999 at 7008595080000000000♠ 18 years, 313 days (the record would later be broken in 2008 by Joey Logano at 7008569851200000000♠ 18 years, 21 days old).
His struggles at the Cup level over two seasons, however, derailed his career, with his last Cup start coming in 2003 at the young age of 22.
After spending parts of seven seasons back in the Busch Series, Atwood's national series career ended in 2009.
For the 2002 season, Ultra underwent three significant changes. As the previous season was drawing to a close, Evernham Motorsports announced it had signed Jeremy Mayfield to drive for the team.
Since Evernham's team, one of the charter teams in Dodge's return to NASCAR, already had two drivers under contract, this required some maneuvering to be done. Ultra and Evernham, therefore, struck an agreement. Mayfield would join Bill Elliott on Evernham's team and take over the #19 Dodge-sponsored car.
The #19's incumbent driver, Casey Atwood, would then move over to Ultra and take over the #7.
In return, Evernham and Ultra would enter into a partnership where Ultra would switch from Ford to Dodge and the team would become known as Ultra-Evernham Motorsports, with Sirius Satellite Radio coming on to sponsor the #7 and the team adopting Evernham's car numbering style.
Growing up in Antioch, Tennessee outside of Nashville, Atwood became interested in racing at a young age. By the age of ten, Atwood was racing go-karts. He later progressed to Late Model Stock racing by the age of 15. He was the 1996 rookie of the year at Nashville Speedway USA. Casey attended John Overton High School in Nashville until he dropped out in 1999 to pursue his racing career.

Nejedly Bridge) crosses the San Joaquin River linking Antioch, California with southern Sacramento County, California, near the city of Isleton, California in the United States. The bridge is signed as part of State Route 160. Unlike the other toll bridges in California, the Antioch bridge has only one lane going in each direction. It has bicycle and pedestrian access.
