Coming to the 2021 season, the brand logo will appear on the #10 truck’s hood at every race in 2021. Furthermore, a number of races will feature an exclusive paint scheme. This includes season-opening NextEra Energy 250 at Daytona International Speedway.

Without a doubt, Cobb will look forward to the new season. She can also look forward to a potential battle with Hailie Deegan for alpha female status. If Natalie Decker manages to land a Truck seat, this could soon develop into a three-way tussle.
