Cobb returns to Truck series full time

Jennifer Jo Cobb will return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck

Series full time as an owner/driver this season. Cobb also will

field an entry in select Nationwide Series races.

Cobb’s “Driven2Honor” program will appear on her vehicles until

primary sponsorship is secured. The program honors female members

of the military by hosting them at the racetrack. Cobb aims to host

a female soldier/veteran at every NCWTS race this season.

Cobb ran her first full season of Truck competition in 2010,

finishing 17th in the championship standings that year to become

the highest-finishing female in one of NASCAR’s top-three national

touring series. In 2011, she raced in 18 of the Nationwide’s

34 events as well as 12 Truck races, finishing a career-best sixth

at Daytona International Speedway in February. She has 41 career

Truck starts and 23 in the Nationwide Series.

“We sat down in the offseason and evaluated our strengths and

weaknesses. We figured out what we needed to leave the same and

what needed to change,” Cobb said. “We realized that we’ll be

better off focusing our efforts primarily on one series, the NASCAR

Camping World Truck Series, and running a few select NASCAR

Nationwide Series events. We felt like we were scrambling last

season between the two series and couldn’t give our best effort in

each event.

“For our small team, we were just spread too thin. Now we can

concentrate primarily on one series and make sure that our trucks

get better and better each week.”

Cobb has moved to a new shop and has added crew members. Steve

Kuykendall returns as her crew chief.

“I’m so excited about how all of our changes are shaping up,”

Cobb said. “We are already seeing dividends. The new shop has more

equipment and resources. Our new crew members have brought lots of

fresh ideas and perspectives to our organization. Our crew chief,

Steve Kuykendall, is able to dial in his efforts on one program and

focus on our truck team. We’re definitely more prepared and more

organized heading into this season. Things are off to a great
