Jennifer Jo Cobb returns to the Kansas Speedway in the #78 Mark One Electric Chevrolet owned by BJ McLeod Motorsports to compete in the Kansas Lottery 300 on Saturday, October 21st. Cobb is from Kansas City, Kansas and is the only Kansas native competing in this event.
“I say this every year – there’s no place like home and I’m excited to once again be competing at my home track,” the full-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver said. “In addition to racing, our week has several great purposes – we will be honoring a female military member through our Driven2Honor program and I have the pleasure to participate in an event on behalf of my sponsors to promote breast cancer awareness month.” Cobb will speak at a Women in Construction Owners & Executives luncheon at Mark One Electric on Wednesday afternoon, October 18. She will be joined by Mindi Beahm, M.D., a general surgeon representing Centerpoint Medical Center. Dr. Beahm’s main focus is surgery for benign and malignant breast disease. The goal of the meeting is to help the WCOE members create a personal plan for breast health and wellness.
Most of the #78 Mark One Electric Chevrolet sponsor logos on the race car have been recolored to pink in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In addition to Mark One Electric, several other Kansas City companies return as sponsors including: Pizza Shoppe, IBC and Cornell Roofing. Cobb also welcomes her full-time NCWTS sponsor for the first time to the XFINITY Series, Think Realty, part of the Affinity Worldwide group of companies.
Cobb has many notable accomplishments in the NCWTS including highest finishing female driver, (6th, Daytona), highest female points finisher (17th in 2010 and 16th in 2014) and the woman with the most starts in the series (143). In 2017 Jennifer is running a full season in NCWTS and select races in NASCAR’s XFINITY Series. Between race events, Jennifer makes appearances for her sponsors, is a public speaker and runs the daily operations of her racing businesses. She is also the founder of Driven2Honor, a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring women who serve in the U.S. military.
