US Cellular 250 at Iowa Speedway

Blake Koch Seeks Redemption in Iowa: After a tough weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Blake Koch and the No. 8 LeafFilter Gutter Protection team is ready to unload at Iowa Speedway this weekend. When the NASCAR XFINITY Series visited Iowa Speedway earlier this season, Koch battled a loose Camry and came out with a 22nd place finish. Koch’s best start of 21st and best finish of 21st came in 2011. This weekend will mark Koch’s 133rd NXS start and his ninth start at the 7/8-mile oval.

Koch’s thoughts on Iowa Speedway: “Last weekend was tough for both myself and my team. We regrouped this week and are ready to head back to Iowa Speedway. I always love the fun, fan-oriented atmosphere that Iowa Speedway has. Earlier this year we battled a loose car during the race and finished 22nd. I’m proud to carry the LeafFilter Gutter Protection paintscheme on my Camry once again this weekend.”

No. 8 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camry: Crew Chief Matt Lucas and the No. 8 crew will unload chassis No. 56 for the 250-lap race. This chassis’ last run was at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
