Blake Koch Pre-Race Report: Bristol Motor Speedway

Blake Koch Looks for Redemption in Bristol, TN: After a rough weekend at Texas Motor Speedway, Koch and the No. 8 LeafFilter Gutter Protection team head to Bristol Motor Speedway looking for redemption. “The Last Great Colosseum” is one of Koch’s favorite tracks and he has turned over 1,300 laps on the .5-mile concrete oval speedway. Making his eighth start at BMS in the XFINITY Series, Koch is looking to forward to strapping into his No. 8 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camry this weekend.

Koch’s thoughts on Bristol Motor Speedway: “Bristol is probably my favorite track that we visit, so I am excited to get behind the wheel this weekend. My guys have put together a great car for Bristol and I am excited to have LeafFilter Gutter Protection back on board as my primary sponsor.”

No. 8 Camry: Crew Chief Bruce Cook and the No. 8 crew will unload chassis No. 117 for the 300-mile race. This chassis’ last run was with Koch at Auto Club Speedway.

Additional Notes:

  • This will mark Koch’s 121st career NASCAR XFINITY Series start
  • Blake will be at the Toyota Pit Pass on Friday, April 17th at 12:30PM signing autographs for fans
