One of my favorite people in the NASCAR world has just sent me a fantastic press release and I have to pass it on! Jenn Jo Cobb will be behind the wheel of the Rick Ware Racing #87 Mark One Electric Chevrolet in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Kansas. Every time I've reached out to drivers for story questions or when working on a racing book project Jenn has replied with a smile. Even if you're not a Jenn Jo Cobb fan you have to like a nice lady! The official Press Release is below!

Two new sponsors, Precision Roofing and 435 Overland Park Place Hotel, join the other locally owned businesses that are proud to support Jennifer at Kansas Speedway.
“Racing is such a great sport for companies that want to really get involved with the driver. We have the privilege of entertaining employees and guests of our sponsors during the pre-race and race day activities,” explained Cobb. “It’s always crazy around our hauler and in the pits which makes the whole weekend fun for everyone!”
