Jennifer Jo Cobb wrecks in Truck race at Dover, is called to NASCAR hauler for her actions


NASCAR officials beckoned Camping World Truck Series driver Jennifer Jo Cobb to the infield hauler following an incident in Friday’s Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway.

Cobb was involved in a wreck on Lap 14. It was unclear from TV replays if she made contact with Tyler Reddick or not, but Cobb apparently felt that was the case.

On Reddick’s next lap around the 1-mile, concrete track, Cobb stepped onto the racing surface and appeared to shout at Reddick.

NASCAR issued a rule last season that prohibits drivers from stepping onto the racetrack to confront a driver while racing is underway, even under yellow caution situations.

The rule change came shortly after Kevin Ward Jr. was killed while walking down a racetrack when he was struck by NASCAR driver Tony Stewart’s car during a sprint car race in upstate New York last August.

Ward appeared as if he wanted to confront Stewart in the belief that Stewart forced Ward to crash into a wall.

NASCAR has the option to issue penalties against Cobb for her actions. If that occurs, the penalties would be announced next week, most likely Tuesday or Wednesday.
