NASCAR America: Blake Koch surprised, thrilled to make second round of Xfinity Chase


With a 12th-place finish last weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Blake Koch advanced to the second round of the Xfinity Series Chase. Koch joins NASCAR America to discuss the accomplishment for the first-year team of Kaulig Racing.

“I expected to make the Chase, I knew it would be tough, but I knew we could do it,” Koch said. “But to make it to the Round of 8 – I didn’t doubt my team, we have a lot of really smart people, hard working guys at Kaulig Racing, and a great sponsor, LeafFliter Gutter Protection, so I didn’t doubt anybody, but I really expect it.”
