1.What music have you recently put on your iPod?

I listen to everything from AC/DC to Beyonce to Chris Ledoux to Andre Bocelli! I have music for every mood and I rely on music to change my moods! (Chill on the plane, pumped up to go out, go racing or to work out… music is VERY important to me!) Last year, a music label sponsored me (Starr E) and their artist, RPM has some great songs (he recorded one about racing! I can’t wait until it’s released). Recently, though… I’ve added mostly top 40 music: Britney, Rihanna, T.I., etc.

2. What was the last movie you saw?

I saw Taken in Santa Monica, CA a couple of weeks ago

3. What are your favorite TV shows?

Greys Anatomy, Joyce Meyer: Enjoying Everyday Life (I wake up, pray, check my Blackberry, then watch Joyce on DVR, everyday that I am home in KC), Saving Grace, Life on Mars, Desperate Housewives

4. What other sporting teams/events do you follow?

Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Wizards and Kansas City T-bones (I’m very loyal to KC!)

5. What is one personal item you can not live without?

I know I can live without anything material, but the most important thing I don’t leave home without is my Blackberry

6. What are your favorite places to visit?

During the season Daytona and Miami are my faves. Off season, I went to Greece and Hawaii in the past year… pretty nice! I spend any spare weekends in either Chicago or Scottsdale when I’m not in KC.

7. What is your favorite clothing brand?

I’m developing very expensive tastes lately! True Religion jeans, William Rast jeans and any cute shirt (I wear my Driver Boutique brand a lot) and heels that’ll go with those!

8. What is your favorite book or publication?

The Bible – I really want to read it beginning to end and I’m getting there! I love reading Glamour magazine and Speedway Illustrated (a great combination!)

9. What is your favorite activity to do in your off time?

Work out; shop; have dinners with a view and wine

10. What is your favorite cuisine?

Seafood, pasta and Gibson’s Chocolate Mousse Pie (Gibson’s is in Chicago)

11. What advice would you give other females looking to get into the sporting world?

Be prepared to work hard, do it for free for a long time, thicken your skin, and be serious about your goals. As long as the dream is in your heart, never ever give up. Also, don’t make decisions when you are tired… the answer is always negative when you are tired. Make your decisions about your life after you are rested!

Next week, we present A Fast Lap with Robin Braig, President of Daytona International Speedway.

Love the Q&A with Jennifer Jo Cobb. True story: I remember a press conference at Kansas Speedway when Jimmy Spencer was on the dais. Jennifer, who was driving AND working for a local TV program, attended the press conference in her fire suit. Jen asked Jimmy if he had any advice for a young driver trying to reach the NASCAR big time. Mr. Excitement looked down from the dais and asked her, "Are you a racecar driver?". JJC said yes, which prompted Jimmy to say "You're too pretty to be a racecar driver."

Good times.

Mr. Humphrey, I remember that moment well! A few minutes later, I took a picture for a local KCK publication (The Kansan) with Jeff Gordon. Jeff actually apologized to me for Jimmy's comment! What a fun day... and your memory is so exactly how it happened!
