Lexington, N.C. (September 14, 2016)- While the 2016 NASCAR XFINITY Series™ (NXS) season is still underway, Kaulig Racing™ is proud to announce that LeafFilter Gutter Protection™ will return as the primary sponsor for Blake Koch’s No. 11 Chevrolet Camaro in 2017, for all 33 NXS races.
Currently Koch is having a career best season with Kaulig Racing™ in the NXS, scoring three top-10 and 14 top-15 finishes, as well as, fighting to maintain a spot in the inaugural NXS Chase. While this is the first season for the West Palm Beach, Fla. native at newly formed Kaulig Racing™, the relationship between himself and LeafFilter Gutter Protection™ has grown over the years, and he credits their support for the opportunities he has today.
“I’m glad that LeafFilter™ will once again be back on my car and invested in my career for another season,” Koch said. “It means the world to me to have a sponsor like LeafFilter™ behind me. I feel like the relationship that LeafFilter™ and I have has become one of the best relationships in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. They are an amazing company, with a great product, and led by an incredible person.”
With a relationship that started in 2014, the 2017 NXS season will mark the fourth year that LeafFilter™ will adorn Koch’s ride. Transitioning from the sponsorship role to team owner in 2016, Matt Kaulig, President and owner of LeafFilter Gutter Protection™, couldn’t be more pleased with the success he has seen in Koch, Kaulig Racing™ and it’s partnership with LeafFilter Gutter Protection™.
“It’s awesome that LeafFilter Gutter Protection™ will be back as the primary sponsor of Blake (Koch) and Kaulig Racing™ next season,” Kaulig said. “2016 has been a great start for Kaulig Racing™ as well as a career-best season for Blake, but I know things will only get better from here.
“LeafFilter™ and their employees work so hard and they have risen to be the best in their industry. We are crazy excited to have LeafFilter™’s brand and employees represented as the primary sponsor of the No. 11 for all 33 races in 2017.”
Looking to repeat the same success next year, Koch will once again be led by General Manager and veteran Crew Chief, Chris Rice, in the 2017 NXS season. While 2016 was the first full-time season that Rice worked with Koch; his vast experience has been a crucial part of the development of Kaulig Racing™ and it’s future.
“I couldn’t be more excited for what the next season will hold for us at Kaulig Racing™,” Rice said. “LeafFilter™ has been an important part of our success this year and now they will be a continued part of that success next year. Now we can turn our focus to making fast race cars and representing LeafFilter™ the best we can on and off the track.”
