Koch drove the #81 car for MacDonald Motorsports in 2012 but was released at the end of the season. Koch finished as runner up, to Timmy Hill, for the title of Nationwide Rookie of the Year.
The 26 year old from West Palm Beach, Florida, ran in 32 of the 34 Nationwide races. Koch finished 18th in the driver standings and had an average finish of 24.9 but failed to lead any laps and had just 5 finishes on the lead lap.
When asked by a fan if he would still be a part of Daystar Racing, Koch replied that he is and will be for years to come.
