Jamie McMurray’s crew chief Matt McCall has been place on probation through December 31st after receiving a P2 penalty from NASCAR. The punishment was for modifying the right rear quarter panel opening after qualifying inspection for the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
So long as McCall does not get dinged by NASCAR again, the impact of this penalty will not be felt, but he will face harsher fines if caught with another infraction. That will make the team slightly more conservative in future races. May 27 - 6:12 PM

Jamie McMurray should be watched closely on Saturday to evaluate whether he has top-five potential. Last year he swept that spot at Charlotte Motor Speedway after starting 26th in May and 18th in October.

McMurray qualified 22nd for this week’s Coca-Cola 600, which places him in between last year’s pair of qualifications. In fall 2013 he started 25th, however, and could only rise to 19th.

Jamie McMurray had the fastest car on long green flag runs, but the end of the race developed yellow fever. McMurray’s fourth-place finish in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway was his second top-five of the year.

This top-five was important because it did not come as the result of a strategy call like the one at Phoenix International Raceway. McMurray is cementing his position in the top 16 in points and making the No. 1 increasingly fantasy relevant.

For the first time since 2007 while he drove for Roush-Fenway Racing, Jamie McMurray posted back-to-back top-10s at Texas Motor Speedway. He finished sixth in the Duck Commander 500.

McMurray also started his career in 2003 with three consecutive top-10s on this track while racing for Chip Ganassi. He had one other top-10 in 2008, but struggled for several seasons. His sixth-place finish helped him climb three spots in the points and gives him a little breathing room.

So far in 2015, Jamie McMurray has been batting 0.500. He has earned three results of 11th or better compared to four efforts outside the top 20.

McMurray’s best result came at Phoenix when he finished second after starting third. Since then, he has finished better than he started in every race.
Apr 5 - 6:09 PM

Jamie McMurray finished 10th in the STP 500 and jumped one position in the standings to 15th.

McMurray has been slowly advancing up the grid and while points are not the primary concern with NASCAR’s win-and-in Chase formula, it is a good gauge of how well a driver and team is running. This was McMurray’s third result of 11th or better in the first six races of 2015.

Jamie McMurray is one of only five drivers who managed to overcome a qualification effort of 25th or worse and finish among the top 10 during Auto Club’s most recent six races. If he finishes with the leaders again this week, he will have to do that again after qualifying 26th.

His teammate Kyle Larson qualified in the top five so fantasy owners know there is some speed in the organization. McMurray is a hidden gem.

Jamie McMurray had a top-10 car for most of the afternoon, but a two-tire strategy near the end propelled him to second. He was able to hang onto the position through two late-race restarts and challenged Kevin Harvick briefly at the close.

That was McMurray’s first top-10 of the season on the heels of an 11th at Las Vegas. This will increase the fantasy relevance for the No. 1 at Auto Club next week.
Mar 15 - 7:00 PM

Phoenix is likely one of Jamie McMurray’s least favorite tracks to visit. In 23 starts there, he earned only three top-10s and has an average finish of 20.8 that places this track 19th out of 23rd in that regard.

He was forced to wait 10 races until he scored his first top-10, but they came a little more frequently since then. His last success was achieved last spring with a 10th in The Profit 500. That was followed by a 14th in the fall.
Mar 13 - 1:51 PM

Jamie McMurray posted the fastest single lap in Thursday morning’s test at Atlanta. His top speed was 191.549 mph, which was more than 1.3 mphs faster than teammate Kyle Larson who was second in that session.

With individual testing banned by NASCAR, these pre-weekend sessions give teams a chance to evaluate and become comfortable with the new aerodynamic package.

Jamie McMurray has been one of the most consistent finishers in recent years in the Sprint Unlimited. He finished second in 2009 and 2011, was third in 2010, and sixth last year.

The only time in his past five attempts that he failed to challenge for a top-five was in the 2012 edition when he was one of 12 drivers who suffered crash damage. Twenty-five drivers started that year, so nearly half of the field was involved in one of three major incidents.

Today’s race marked the sixth Rolex 24 At Daytona win for Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (CGRFS) in just 12 attempts.

CGRFS now holds the record for most Rolex 24 At Daytona wins in the 53-year history of the race (2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2015) – recently tied with Brumos Racing. This is the second Rolex 24 win for the No. 02 car (2006, 2015). With his first win, Jamie McMurray joined AJ Foyt and Mario Andretti as the only drivers to win the Daytona 500 and the Rolex 24 At Daytona. This marked the second Rolex 24 At Daytona win for Scott Dixon (2006, 2015), and the first for Tony Kanaan in just his second start with CGRFS. This marked the first Rolex 24 At Daytona win for Kyle Larson in just his second Rolex 24 start.-Chip Ganassi Racing

Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (CGRFS) announced today that Matt McCall has been named crew chief for Jamie McMurray and the No. 1 team.

McCall will assume the role effective immediately to prepare for the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) season. McCall joins CGRFS from Richard Childress Racing where he most recently has been the race engineer for the No. 31 Chevrolet that made it to the Championship round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, ultimately finishing the season second in the championship point standings. McCall is also a former driver who has competed in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and ARCA Racing Series.-Chip Ganassi Racing

Jamie McMurray finished fifth in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. It was his seventh top-five of the season and his second of the past three races.

McMurray was one of the strongest contenders all season, but a lack of consistency and some bad luck early in the year kept him out of the Chase. He and 2014 Rookie of the Year teammate Kyle Larson should be immediate good values in 2015.

Jamie McMurray posted the fastest single lap in the final practice session for the Quicken Loans 500k. His top speed was 137.106 mph.

McMurray has not been one of the top-ranked drivers in pre-race coverage at Phoenix and he should be a better earner next week at Homestead, but in place-and-hold leagues, he could provide good value if he sneaks into the top 10.
