This is Koch's first ARCA Racing Series event, and he plans to run a full NASCAR K&N Pro Series West series 2010 season.

HOMETOWN TOUR - As the ARCA Racing Series and Koch head to Palm Beach International Raceway this weekend, Koch will be greeted by his hometown crowd of West Palm Beach, Florida.

NEW STOP FOR ARCA - This will be the first time the ARCA Racing Series will race at Palm Beach International Raceway. The event at PBIR is ARCA Racing Series' 13th road course race since 1958.
