Cobb aims to improve her best finish this week at Chicagoland Speedway in the EnjoyIllinois.com 225.

Cobb Comments on Chicagoland Speedway:
"I'm excited to go back to the Chicagoland Speedway. I have a top-10 finish in the ARCA Series at the track. I've raced there once since that event. We just took our Nationwide Series car there. We called it a dress rehearsal race because we wanted to have a good showing at Kansas [Speedway] and used that weekend to prepare. So I've got some recent laps there. That Nationwide car wasn't quite up to par and we didn't make the show, but we did get to practice which is always helpful. There's no substitute for seat time at a track, so hopefully that experience will help us at Chicagoland.
"I like the track. It suits my driving style. It suits our team. We've done really well at mile-and-a-half tracks this season. We're ready.
"I have a condo in downtown Chicago. It's just a beautiful city. I just sit there on the 29th floor in the middle of the lights and say to myself, 'Why don't I come here more?' I have great friends there. It's a very big city, but it's very friendly and very safe and I love being downtown. You can go there and hear old time Frank Sinatra music or have some Gibson's Chocolate Mousse Pie. That's my number one, favorite thing on Chicago's menu."
