Jennifer Jo Cobb‘s NASCAR Cup Series début at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday is not happening. On Monday, Fox Sports’ Bob Pockrass reported NASCAR did not approve her for the race, meaning Rick Ware Racing must find another driver to run the #15 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE.
Cobb, a veteran of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, joined RWR for 25 April’s GEICO 500 last Tuesday. While she is rarely a weekly contender in her main series as she drives for her own small team, her lone Truck top ten came at sister superspeedway Daytona in 2011, while she led sixteen laps in the 2020 Talladega Truck race en route to finishing eleventh. She also has two starts at Talladega in the Xfinity Series.
