Cobb called to NASCAR hauler after approaching trucks on live track - video
Jennifer Jo Cobb wanted to show her displeasure with Tyler Reddick after an incident, but NASCAR officials were not happy with the way she went about showing it.
Jennifer Jo Cobb was called to the NASCAR hauler during Friday’s Camping World Truck Series race at Dover International Speedway, having a talk with series officials. NASCAR was not pleased with here climbing from her damaged No. 10 Chevy truck and approaching Tyler Reddick’s BKR machine under caution.
Following the death of Kevin Ward Jr. during a Sprint Car race last year when he was struck by Tony Stewart, NASCAR banned that kind of behavior.
Reddick was attempting to pass Cobb, who was already a lap down, on Lap 14 when her truck plowed into the inside wall out of turn four. Although Reddick’s team told the driver he did not make contact with Cobb, that wasn’t her impression. Cobb climbed from her truck and proceeded to wave her hands and shake her finger at the eventual race winner.
Cobb asked the crew if the truck was fixable, but the team was done for the race. Cobb used an owner’s provisional to make the show. She was seen and released from the infield care center. Cobb entered the weekend 15th in the point standings. She finished 32nd on Friday.
