Jamie McMurray has a reputation for performing exceptionally well in marquee races. His 2010 Brickyard 400 victory came in his first attempt after rejoining Chip Ganassi’s organization.
This week’s prognosis is not as great, however. McMurray finished fourth at Indy the following year, but his last two attempts ended in results of 22nd in 2012 and 15th in 2013. In five races on flat tracks this year he topped out with 10th-place finishes at Phoenix and Pocono, which is the high water mark fantasy owners should expect on Sunday. Jul 22 - 5:55 PM

Jamie McMurray did not sustain crash damage at New Hampshire and as a result he finished 16th.

Fantasy players who think failing to get involved in a wreck at New Hampshire was much of an accomplishment need to take a closer look at McMurray’s season. He has been slowed or stopped by crash damage in almost half of his starts this season including the three events that preceded the Camping World RV Sales 301.

Jamie McMurray finished 16th in the Camping World RV Sales 301 and climbed one position in the standings, but he remains well outside of the Chase cutoff in 21st without a 2014 victory to his credit.

McMurray is known for his ability to score big on NASCAR’s grandest stages, however, and the Cup field rolls into Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Brickyard 400 as their next outing. Fantasy players will want to give serious consideration to starting him in that race, but if he does not perform he could be relegated to the bench for the foreseeable future.

Jamie McMurray was one of 13 drivers who swept the top 15 at New Hampshire last year with a 12th in the Camping World RV Sales 301 and a fifth in the Sylvania 300.

His top-15 streak on this one-mile oval should put him on a few fantasy radar screens, but it bears noting that his best effort in the two previous seasons was a 20th. McMurray’s best short, flat track attempt this year was a 10th, however, and that came on the other one-mile flat track of Phoenix so he should be watched for signs of strength in practice.
