He has competed in the Dakar Rally since 2004 in the truck category, initially as co-driver for his uncle Jan de Rooy and since 2006 as driver for the Exact-MAN team. After finishing second in the 2006 Dakar Rally, Stacey went on to win the 2007 Dakar Rally, winning five stages and coming in with more than a three-hour lead over the runner-up Ilgizar Mardeev.
