Sounding Off- Blake Koch… “We learned a lot about our new downforce package at Atlanta last week that will translate to Vegas this weekend. We made a lot of adjustments to our Vegas car after getting a feel for our Atlanta setup, so I think we will be much better off when we unload on Friday. After a tough weekend at Atlanta, I’m just excited to get back in the car and look forward to a better weekend.”

2017 Season… Koch is currently 19th in the NXS Championship standings after a rough weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Koch was involved in a Lap-2 incident, which crushed the radiator of the No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camaro, relegating Koch to a 40th-place finish.
