NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series team owner and driver Jennifer Jo Cobb will be back in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series this weekend, when the series will compete at Brands Hatch in the NASCAR GP UK. The American will make her debut in the ELITE 1 Division at the wheel of the #1 Alex Caffi Motorsport Ford Mustang under the management of Racing-Total.
The June 1-2 American SpeedFest will mark the first time for Cobb at the historic Brands Hatch Indy Circuit and the Kansas City native is looking forward to a special weekend in Euro NASCAR.
“This opportunity is extremely exciting and quite honestly a bit surreal because I have always admired the Alex Caffi Motorsport team,” said the American, who started in a total of 176 Truck Series races in the US. “My number one goal is to have a safe race. Of course stepping up to the ELITE 1 Division is a bit intimidating but the first thing I can do is to take care of the equipment Alex Caffi Motorsport will give me and learn as much as I can about the track.”
Cobb will enter her third NWES event after taking part in the NWES season opener at Valencia for two years in a row with Hubertus Heyman and Regina Riedel’s Racing-Total. The German company will keep managing the American driver’s presence in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.
“Of course I am ever grateful for the support of Racing-Total’s Hubertus and Regina, who have made this possible. They are incredible! I’m still digesting this fantastic opportunity and I’m looking forward to an amazing weekend in the UK in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series,” concluded Cobb.
Qualifying and all races from the NASCAR GP UK will be streamed live at Fanschoice.tv, the Euro NASCAR YouTube channel and Facebook page, on Motorsport.tv and a vast network of websites and social media pages from around the world.
