Blake Koch has signed on to compete full-time in the NASCAR Nationwide Series in 2014, driving an entry for TriStar Motorsports, according to a release from the race team on Friday. He'll be a teammate to Mike Bliss and Eric McClure.

"I'm extremely excited, blessed and proud to join TriStar Motorsports," Koch said. "(Team owner) Mark Smith has been in NASCAR for a long time and is respected by everyone in the garage. His team has evolved into a quality race team with continuous growth and a great reputation. There are talented people in place to build fast race cars, and we will have strong Toyota engines supplied by his company, Pro Motor Engines. I'm also looking forward to working with teammates that I can lean on like Mike Bliss and Eric McClure. Daytona can't come soon enough."

Koch ran a partial schedule last year, finishing out the year 25th in the Nationwide Series championship standings. In all, he has 86-career starts in the series, dating back to 2009.

"Blake will be a fresh face to our veteran roster," car owner Mark Smith said. "He's a talented and passionate driver with a lot of potential. I'm really looking forward to working with him this season."
