TRUCKS: Jennifer Jo Cobb’s Engine Expires at Pocono

SOURCE: Rubbin's Racin'
Jennifer Jo Cobb picked up the 3rd last-place finish of her NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career in Saturday’s Pocono Mountains 125 at the Pocono Raceway when her #10 Driven2Honor.org Dodge Ram lost the engine on the opening lap of the 50-lap race.

The finish was the first for Cobb in 2012 and her first since New Hampshire, 17 races ago, when another engine failure kept her from completing the first lap.

Jo Cobb qualified 24th at a speed of 159.665 mph, ranking her second among the ten "go-or-go-homers" behind 22nd place Jeff Agnew. Pocono would be her eighth start of the 2012 season and her third in a row following a DNQ back at Kentucky.

Unfortunately, an engine failure prevented her from completing a lap of Saturday’s race. Teammate Chris Lafferty in the #0 retired a lap later with crash damage that did not bring out a caution.
