Jamie McMurray has scored six top-15s in his last eight attempts at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
McMurray’s worst finish in the last five years has been three 19th-place finishes, offset by three top-fives. His average finish of 12.3 makes him a good value on paper, but the No. 1 team has been less than stellar on unrestricted, intermediate speedways in 2018. Keep him in mind during pre-race sessions, but do not activate unless McMurray is extremely impressive in practice. May 22 - 10:54 AM

Jamie McMurray snapped an eight-race streak of top-12 finishes last fall at Kansas Speedway and has not been nearly as strong on the track type since.

McMurray’s next three efforts all ended outside the top 15 until this year’s O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. He finished third in that race after starting 24th and hopes it will turn his luck back around.

Erik Jones swept across the nose of Jamie McMurray and triggered a five-car pileup in segment one of the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

Jones and McMurray collected Martin Truex Jr., Trevor Bayne, and Kyle Larson. Remove these drivers from your NASCAR Fantasy Live roster. This is the second car torn up by McMurray this week, after destroying his primary in a practice crash.

Jamie McMurray posted the fastest single lap of 203.978 mph in final practice for the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, but he did not get to enjoy it. Barely 15 minutes into the session, he was involved in a multi-car incident.

McMurray cut a left rear tire and turned sideways in front of Ryan Newman. He barrel rolled more than five times, but was uninjured. McMurray will be forced to roll out a backup for Sunday’s race.

Jamie McMurray was collected in an accident with seven laps remaining in stage one of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway, when Chris Buescher and Trevor Bayne tangled in front of the leaders.

McMurray lost two laps immediately and will continue to drop precipitously down the order. Remove him from your NASCAR Fantasy Live roster.

Four drivers have been penalized 15 minutes of practice time in the first session for the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway after failing inspection last week at Texas Motor Speedway.

Jamie McMurray, Kyle Larson, Paul Menard, and Reed Sorenson will have to park their car during the last 15 minutes of the session and their crew will not be able to work on them. That is not likely to create much of an issue on this half-mile bullring.
Apr 13 - 12:12 PM

Jamie McMurray finished third in the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, which was his first top-five in the past 13 Monster Energy Cup Series races.

McMurray has had a rocky start to the beginning of the 2018 season after getting off to a great start last year. This could turn things around, but fantasy owners will probably want to be a little cautious until he earns another top-10.
Apr 8 - 6:51 PM

Running two laps down at the time, Jamie McMurray spun off the nose of Austin Dillon’s car and slapped the wall in the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

McMurray was not have a good day already and this certainly did not help his finishing result, but the car should be able to continue.
Mar 26 - 4:38 PM

Jamie McMurray lost a lap late in the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway and was the first driver one lap down at the end of segment one.

McMurray has been losing his consistency in 2018 and does not seem to be making up any ground at the moment.
Mar 26 - 3:00 PM

Jamie McMurray has not yet earned a top-15 in 2018 with his best result of 16th coming in the wild card Daytona 500.

Last year, McMurray was one of, if not the most consistent drivers in the field in the opening races so this has come as quite a surprise for fantasy owners. It’s time to stop waiting for his fortune to reverse and the No. 1 should be left in the garage until McMurray earns at least two consecutive top-15s. Even then, he should only the started on tracks that best suit his driving style.
Mar 21 - 1:39 PM

Jamie McMurray posted the second fastest lap in Friday’s practice for the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway with a speed of 137.762 mph.

McMurray was comfortably atop the leaderboard until his teammate Kyle Larson posted a lap that was .098 seconds faster in the final moments of practice. With both Chip Ganassi Racing teams at the top of the leaderboard, that underlines the overall strength of this organization.

In addition to driving his regular No. 1 Chevrolet in Sunday's Cup Series Ticket Guardian 500, Jamie McMurray will pilot the No. 42 DC Solar Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) DC Solar 200 at ISM (Phoenix) Raceway on Saturday.

McMurray will make his first NXS start in over four years (143 races), his last start came in Sept. 2013 at Richmond. He has 187 career NXS starts on his resume with 68 top-10 and 31 top-five finishes including eight series victories. His last NXS victory was in 2010 at Atlanta. McMurray's only NXS win with Chip Ganassi Racing was in 2004 at ISM Raceway. In 12 previous NXS starts at ISMR he has led 47 laps and has four top-10 and one top-five finish.-CGR

Jamie McMurray appeared to cut a tire with 91 laps remaining in the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and slapped the wall.

McMurray was running just outside the top 10 at the time. Last year, he had one of the most consistent records on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but he has struggled in the first two races this season. He should be done for the day and will retire in about 36th.
Mar 4 - 5:41 PM

Jamie McMurray’s 19th-place finish last week at Atlanta Motor Speedway is the third consecutive time that he has finished outside the top 15 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track.

This is significant because McMurray earned eight straight top-15s on this track type at the beginning of last year. He struggled considerably at Kansas Speedway last fall and finished 34th, then was 18th at Texas Motor Speedway. With a third poor result, fantasy players can identify this as a trend.
Feb 27 - 7:00 PM

Jamie McMurray was the first driver to sustain damage in last weekend’s Advance Auto Parts Clash, which confirms that he is crash prone on restrictor-plate, superspeedways.

McMurray has sustained some crash damage in 21 of the 32 races he has run on the big tracks since rejoining Chip Ganassi Racing, which equates to 65.6 percent of the time. When he stays out of trouble he is a decent value, however, with a pair of wins in that same span including the 2010 Daytona 500.
