Unfortunate circumstances forced the NASCAR team to withdraw after arriving at the track today
The No. 10 truck out of the Jennifer Jo Cobb Racing stable has attempted every NASCAR Truck Series race since 2010. However, the team will not be competing this weekend.
Cobb was on the entry list and even pulled into the garage area. However, hauler issues forced her to miss inspection and miss practice.
Cobb has opted to withdraw from this weekend’s race at Nashville Superspeedway. She explained in the update below:
Jennifer Jo Cobb explains
“We have been battling issues with our transporter for a while now. It became unsafe to use (the elevator lift gate is broken, which is a common problem on these big transporters) so it is down for a costly and lengthy repair,” Jennifer Jo Cobb stated via social media.
“We rented a transporter for our Fastener Supply Company Ford this week and when the team arrived at the track at 7am this morning the lift gate on the rented hauler would not open.”
“They spent hours trying to find a solution and with just a few minutes before practice they were finally able to unload our truck and equipment. There was not enough time to get through technical inspection, get our new tires purchased and mounted and get the truck on track for sufficient practice.”
“We had to make a very difficult decision to withdraw from this event. The #10 truck has attempted every single race since Daytona 2010, so this stung. But we believe we made the right decision for our team.
“A huge thanks to our sponsors for understanding and standing beside us through the difficulties:Fastener Supply Company, Tori Martin Music, Waldo’s Painting Company, Paradigm Racing, Schultz Engineered Products, Driven2Honor and Pit Stops for Hope.
