Young Gun Kenton Koch Shares Near Season End Impressions Of A Professional Racer

This season has been filled with ups and downs and boy were they some big swings. In the end, things are better than ever and life has started laying its path in front of me. Currently I am racing in the IMSA Prototype Challenge in an LMP3 car with a brand-new team, P1 Motorsports. This year has also been a busy coaching year and I am extremely thankful for it. Coaching is something I really enjoy doing and work hard to provide the best value for my clients. With so many things going on, a balance between everything is necessary.
