Jennifer Jo Cobb picked up the 2nd last-place finish of his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career in Saturday’s F.W. Webb 175 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway when her #10 hipchixfundraisers.com Ford fell out with engine trouble without completing any of the race’s 175 laps.
It’s Jo Cobb’s first last-place finish of the 2011 Truck Series season, but the second for her team. Chris Lafferty, driving in the only race this season where Jo Cobb’s truck was a Chevrolet, fell out after two laps at Dover in May.
With a short field of 35 competitors, Jo Cobb made her eighth Truck Series start of 2011 and the twelfth for her team. She, Brennan Newberry, and Jason White all failed to complete a timed lap in qualifying, giving Jo Cobb and White the final two starting spots following Newberry’s withdrawal. Following a pit stop just prior to the start of the race, Jo Cobb pulled her #10 behind the wall with engine trouble.
*This is Jo Cobb’s first Truck Series last-place finish since 2009, when her #50 Boys Racing Dodge fell out with engine problems after the opening lap of the Mountain Dew 250 Fueled by Fred’s at Talladega.
*Jo Cobb is the second Truck Series last-placer to fall out first without completing a single lap, joining Chris Jones’ run at last month’s VFW 200 at Michigan. Jones finished 32nd at Loudon, just ahead of last week’s last-placer Mike Harmon in his #74.
*This is the first time a Truck Series competitor has failed to complete the opening lap at Loudon since 1996, when Mike Hurlbert’s #11 RPM Racing Ford lost the engine in that year’s Pennzoil / VIP Tripleheader.
