Blake Koch has created a major fan base in both the NASCAR community and the faith based market over the past three years. In 2009, with only 20 amateur races under his belt, he was recruited by Steve Portenga to join as the primary driver for the Richard Childress Driver development team in the NASCAR Camping World West Division. Blake achieved an impressive top ten finish in his rookie year by finishing the season 8th in points .
Richard Childress Driver development team resigned Koch for the 2010 NASCAR west division in which Koch was 6th in points with 3 top fives and 7 top ten finishes. In 2011, after only three short years, Koch went full time into the NASCAR Nationwide Series. In his first 10 career NASCAR Nationwide Series races, Blake Koch earned 5 Top-25 finishes. He joined the elite group of three of the most popular and successful drivers in the sport that also had 5 Top-25’s in their first 10 NNS races. Those would be Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Koch completed 32 Nationwide Races in 2011 and finished 18th in points and was in a close battle for the 2011 “Rookie of the Year” title. Koch missed it by one point in the final race finishing “Runner Up” Rookie of the year.
