From the GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono this August through the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire three weeks ago, Jamie McMurray posted eight consecutive top-15s. Then, he suffered bad luck at Dover and Kansas to finish in the 20s twice. He needed to rebound at Charlotte and did just that with a third-place finish in the Bank of America 500.
Since he failed to make the Chase, McMurray is one of the best values in most salary cap games. The series heads to Talladega next week, which is a site where McMurray won last year to become one of the most recent spoilers in the Chase battle. McMurray failed to qualify for the playoffs in 2013.
