NCWTS: Jennifer Jo Cobb and Tyler Reddick Tangle Early in Lucas Oil 200


DOVER, Del. — Just 15 laps in Friday’s Lucas Oil 200 is all it took for the first yellow of the day to fly. Jennifer Jo Cobb and Tyler Reddick tangled coming out of turn 4 with Jo Cobb getting turned into the inside wall.

“I was coming up on lap traffic and new the leaders were about to lap me. I was going to wait to lap the No. 6 (Norm Benning) until they passed, but he (Reddick) got into the back of me sending me for a spin.”

As Jo Cobb spun, her Chevrolet Silverado’s front end crunched up as she took a hard hit on the inside wall ending her day.

“This is frustrating. We have two trucks to get through the next 20 races, and now, one of them are gone. I had a new sponsor in Royal Pest Solutions on board this week as well as Military guest and it sucks for everyone,” she added.

After her hard hit with the inside wall, Jo Cobb was released from the infield care center. At her hauler, she praised NASCAR for their safety.

“We were in lap traffic early on. She was trying to pass the truck in front of her and looked like she was going to give me 3-wide, and she closed the door so I slowed up to not get into the back of her but she got loose, spun and tore her vehicle up,” stated Reddick in a post-race interview.

Reddick ended by saying “I feel really bad for that happen to them and their team. I understand their frustration from my dirt-track days when you have to fix your own equipment.”

Reddick went on to win the race after starting fourth while Jo Cobb finished a disappointing 32nd.
