Jennifer Jo Cobb picked up the 4th last-place finish of her NASCAR Camping World Truck Series career in Saturday’s Kroger 250 at the Martinsville Speedway when her #10 Driven2Honor.org RAM fell out with clutch problems after she completed 22 of the race’s 250 laps.
The finish was Cobb’s first of 2013 and her first in the series since last summer at Pocono, thirteen races ago. Part-time teammate Blake Koch scored her team’s most recent last-place finish while driving the #0 Ford in the finale at Homestead last fall.
Cobb qualified 35th in the 36-truck field. She failed to complete a qualifying lap, but was locked-in on Owner Points along with Robert Bruce and Norm Benning. All three were slower than Jonathan Davenport and Clay Greenfield, who didn’t make the field for Saturday’s race.
Cobb pulled behind the wall during the opening green-flag run, followed fourteen laps later by Daytona last-placer Scott Riggs.
*This was the first last-place finish for a RAM in a Truck Series race at Martinsville since 2006, when Damon Lusk’s #25 Woodard Racing Dodge was involved in a two-truck crash after 63 laps of the Kroger 200.
*This was the first last-place finish for both Cobb and the #10 in a Truck Series race at Martinsville.
*This was the second-straight race at Martinsville where the last-place finisher fell out with clutch problems. Last fall in the Kroger 200, Chris Fontaine’s Stingray Chevrolet / Glenden Enterprises Chevrolet had the same problem after five laps of the Kroger 200.
