Jennifer Jo Cobb
Jennifer Jo Cobb is a professional NASCAR racecar driver, NASCAR team owner, international public speaker, entrepreneur, and a corporate spokesperson. Jennifer began racing at the grassroots level of NASCAR in Kansas City in 1991. She holds several competition records in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series including: highest finishing female driver in the overall points for a season; most starts by a female driver in ANY NASCAR series. She has broken into the 200+mph club with a land speed record and has competed across the globe including in the NASCAR Euro Series in Spain and the United Kingdom. She is one of just a handful of women with a top-10 finish at the highest levels of NASCAR.
Jennifer’s dream of being a racecar driver began when she was just 8 years old and she has climbed the ranks of auto racing despite the odds against her. Off the track, Jennifer is a business professional with media, marketing and advertising experience. She is a published writer, motivational speaker and was once the co-host of a television show called Inside Motorsports.
She currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and part-time in the NASCAR Whelen Euro and XFINITY Series’.
In 2018 Jennifer was invited to be a speaking ambassador for the U.S. Embassy and toured the country of Georgia spreading a message of empowerment and encouragement for aspiring entrepreneurs. In 2019 she spent 30 days over three trips touring across Russia, sharing encouragement and diplomacy to students and business groups. This role led to an opportunity as Executive Director for a newly formed not-for-profit called Driven Diplomacy International.
In 2011 she launched Driven2Honor (www.Driven2Honor.org), a non-profit to recognize the efforts and promote female military members. Driven2Honor honors a female military member (past or current) with a VIP behind-the-scenes experience at every NASCAR event in which Jennifer competes.
