LEXINGTON, N.C. — LeafFilter Gutter Protection will return as the primary sponsor of Blake Koch’s Kaulig Racing Cherolet for all 33 NASCAR XFINITY Series races next season.
Koch is having a career-best season with Kaulig Racing in the XFINITY ranks, scoring three top-10 and 14 top-15 finishes, as well as fighting to maintain a spot in the inaugural XFINITY Chase.
While this is the first season for the West Palm Beach, Fla. native at newly formed Kaulig Racing, the relationship between Koch and LeafFilter Gutter Protection has grown over the years.
“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 XFINITY 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 its 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.”
Koch will once again be led by general manager and veteran crew chief Chris Rice.
“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.”
