Jen Jo Cobb: One Track at a Time (Las Vegas recap)

Still on the tail of what Jennifer Jo Cobb refers to as her most embarrassing moment in NASCAR to date, Cobb leaves Phoenix for another day. Choosing not to climb under a rock and hide, like some would do she chose to face it. She talks about it a little more in this piece. My Most Embarrassing NASCAR Moment at

The Jennifer Jo Cobb Racing Team loaded up, moving onto Las Vegas for the running of the Sam’s Town 300. It was announced by JJCR that they will partner with 2nd Chance Race Parts for the first five NASCAR Nationwide Series races. Cobb will be driving the #79 2nd Chance Ford in NNS Sam’s Town 300. The #79 team was looking for some redemption in this weekend's race.

Steve Kuykendall, Cobb’s crew chief, tweeted on Friday: “I’m sitting at the laundry mat in Las Vegas, great day, respectable 20th in practice. New engine, looking for big things tomorrow.

Jennifer started the race in 31st position, right near her "friend" Kyle Busch. Unfortunately, after 127 laps Jen fell victim to an accident which left her unable to return to the track. Gaining only 12 points, Cobb sits 30th in the Nationwide standings.

@CrewChiefSteve “Felt like jennifer was very competitive today in vegas! Car is banged up, but we live to race another day!"

Jennifer is desperately in need of that famous "golden horseshoe" once worn by Jimmie Johnson. A little luck would really do well for her at this point. It can be stressful as a new owner/driver, but I think Cobb can do it. She just needs a top-10 finish to set her in the right direction.

With a week off for both NNS and Sprint Cup, JJC Racing sets their sites on Darlington Raceway. Rookie driver Chase Matioli, from Long Pond, Pa., will be behind the wheel of the #10 Ford in the Too Tough to Tame 200 with Crew Chief Cal Boprey.

Side note: Chase Matioli will be driving the #10 for the 2011 season. The team
will have the 2nd Chance Motorsports car back together by the end of the week, said Jen in the following Tweet, "That super sucks. Car not terrible. Fixable 4 future races”
