Jennifer Jo Cobb – a full-time competitor and team owner in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series — will make her NASCAR Cup Series debut at Talladega Superspeedway, piloting the No. 15 Arrowhead Brass Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE for Rick Ware Racing.
“I am so thankful for this opportunity with Rick Ware Racing and greatly appreciate Arrowhead Brass for coming on board to help make this happen. It’s also exciting to have my long-time sponsor Fastener Supply extend their support as well,” said Cobb. “I have a long history with Rick Ware Racing and a lot of respect for this organization. This team has a lot of heart and reminds me a lot of my small team competing against such mammoth organizations. I am proud of what Rick Ware Racing has accomplished and I want nothing more than to make the team, Arrowhead Brass, and all my sponsors and supporters proud of this effort.”
Across the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Cobb has a total of 247 starts, scoring a single top-10 finish at Daytona International Speedway in 2011. Last October, Cobb led 16 laps in the NASCAR Truck Series event at Talladega, the most laps a female driver has led in a single race on an oval in any of NASCAR’s top-three series.
“I am grateful to have a new sponsor like Arrowhead Brass join in my excitement of having Jennifer Jo Cobb drive for Rick Ware Racing at Talladega Superspeedway,” commented team owner Rick Ware. “Being a female in a male dominated sport is not an easy task, especially for as long as Jennifer has been competing in NASCAR. I hope that she has a successful first NASCAR Cup Series debut and look forward to Arrowhead Brass making their NASCAR Sponsorship debut at Talladega as the primary sponsor on Jennifer’s car.”
Arrowhead Brass – founded in 1936 — is a manufacturer of long-lasting plumbing valves and irrigation products that have been a staple in homes for generations. The company’s mission is to be the North American premier provider of these products and to stay true to our seven core values; customer commitment, quality, integrity, teamwork, respect, personal accountability, and good citizenship.
“We at Arrowhead Brass are extremely proud to partner with RWR to sponsor the #15 car at Talladega,” said Jim Kapparos, Managing Director of Marketing and Sales at Arrowhead Bass. “I believe that we share many values with the RWR organization, and it seems fitting that our first car sponsorship would also have a first time Cup Driver. We as an organization are extremely excited by the potential we see in participating and growing within the NASCAR community now and in the future”
Fastener Supply Company – a sponsor of Jennifer Jo Cobb Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series — will also join the effort at Talladega Superspeedway.
“We are honored to come alongside Jennifer Jo Cobb as she makes her NASCAR Cup Series debut with RWR at Talladega”, said Donnie Shrum, President of Fastener Supply Company. “During our time as primary sponsor for her NCWTS team, she has brought tremendous value to our company. I cannot think of anyone more deserving than Jen to get the chance for her first Cup start. We appreciate this opportunity that has been given to us by RWR and look forward to the race.”
Cobb will become the fifth driver of the Rick Ware Racing No. 15 Chevrolet Camaro in 2021, after Derrike Cope, James Davison, Joey Gase and Chris Windom. Davison earned the car’s season-high result of 22nd-place last weekend at Martinsville.
