Koch Rolls the Dice on New Qualifying Procedure in Vegas


Blake Koch, driver of the No. 35 MDS Transport Ford, comments on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

"This new qualifying procedure is definitely making things interesting and adding an extra element to have to prepare for and think about going into race weekend. It used to be you'd go out, wait for them to tell you to go and hammer off two laps. Now you have to find a hole and make sure when you cut it off coming into Turns 1 and 2 to get off the racetrack you don't screw someone else's lap up. It's a lot more to think about than just going fast for two laps.

"We had a decent first race together last week at Phoenix. It wasn't quite the finish we wanted, but we accomplished what we set out to do, which was to get comfortable with the car, run solid laps, stay out of trouble and learn as much as possible. I think going to Vegas with the extra test day, that's just going to help us even more and put us in a good position for Sunday's race as the second race under my belt in the MDS Ford."

JUST THE FACTS: Sunday's race would be Koch's first Sprint Cup start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway ... He has two career starts at Las Vegas in the Nationwide Series.
