Casey held the PRCA record of seven saddle and bareback championships and was twice World All-Round Rodeo Champion. Life magazine featured him on its cover in 1951. He worked as an actor while still on the rodeo circuit and had jobs as both a stuntman and stunt coordinator. Many of his movie roles cast him to portray himself.

A huge bronze statue of Casey, on the bull Necktie, dominates the entrance to the Pro Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs.
