(EDITOR'S NOTE : takes a look at the five drivers who are competing for the NASCAR Nationwide Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award. Today's driver: Jennifer Jo Cobb.)

Driver: Jennifer Jo Cobb

Date of birth: June 12, 1973

Team: Rick Ware Racing

Crew chief: Steve Kuykendall

Past racing accomplishments: Highest finishing woman in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in a race (sixth)

Outlook for season: Between the start-and-park drama at Bristol and running her truck team, there is no way Cobb will contend for the rookie-of-the-year honors in the Nationwide Series. Besides that, she is in RWR's second car and not the team's priority. Cobb has not run as well in the NNS as in the truck series. Perhaps she should have stayed in the Truck series another year before moving up.
