Jennifer Jo Cobb penalized for having phone in truck

NASCAR fined the Camping World Truck Series driver for carrying her cell phone with her in the Truck.

Camping World Truck Series driver Jennifer Jo Cobb was fined $7,500 by NASCAR on Tuesday for having a cell phone in her Truck during final practice Saturday at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (VIDEO).

The original penalty was $5,000 but $2,500 was added because Cobb remains on probation from an incident in May at Dover, Del., when she exited her truck following accident but before safety personnel arrived.

She remains on NASCAR probation through the end of the year.

After crashing into a tire barrier and exiting her Truck, Cobb could be clearly seen on the Fox Sports 1 broadcast reaching back into her Truck and grabbing her cell phone while track workers assisted her to a waiting ambulance.

In 2012, NASCAR banned drivers from having cell phones or any other computer-like devices in their vehicles.

The ban was prompted after Sprint Cup Series driver Brad Keselowski tweeted pictures from his phone during a red flag in the 2012 Daytona 500.  

Later that same season, Keselowski was fined $25,000 for again tweeting photos from his phone during a red-flag stoppage in action in a race at Phoenix.

“Smart devices and smartphones and other devices can have an effect on manipulating the technology that is now going to be in the cars, and we have to be careful with that,” NASCAR Chairman Brian France said at the time.
