Jamie McMurray finished fifth in the Bank of America 500, which was his first top-five in the past nine races.

That might have been his first top-five in a while, but he has been one of the top values regardless. In his last nine efforts, he has not failed to score a top-15 and consistency is often more important than raw power. Of course, it’s nice when the two can be combined.
Oct 8 - 5:08 PM

As predicted on Rotoworld in the Weekend Update, Jamie McMurray scored yet another top 10 in the Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway. He crossed under the checkers ninth.

McMurray has eight top-10s and 14 top-15s in his last 18 attempts—a rolling half season. He qualified modestly in 26th and that means he added 17 place-differential points to his total.
Oct 1 - 8:05 PM

Jamie McMurray finished 10th in the Taste of the Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway.

That has been the common theme for McMurray all year. He rarely challenges for the win, but his consistent finishes in the high single digits and low teens makes him one of the most attractive fantasy options in the field.
Sep 18 - 9:58 AM

Jamie McMurray finished 10th in the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, which is his 13th top-10 in 25 races this season.

McMurray has another seven top-15s and a 17th. He has been the most consistent driver this season and while he may struggle to make the second round of the playoffs he is going to continue to be a great fantasy value.
Sep 3 - 11:31 PM

Jamie McMurray posted the quickest 10-lap average in the first practice session for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway with a speed of 126.604 from laps three through 12.

Long run speed is critical on a rhythm track like Bristol. McMurray enters the race with six consecutive top-15s, but no top-fives. Look for another finish in that same range.
Aug 18 - 1:55 PM

Jamie McMurray finished ninth in the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway, which was his fourth consecutive top-10 on this track.

McMurray’s position in the playoff rankings is not entirely secure if there are more unique winners in the next three races. He needs to get up to the leaders and challenge for wins. His consistency makes him a great fantasy value, however.
Aug 13 - 8:43 PM

Jamie McMurray finished seventh in the Quaker State 400 by Advance Auto Parts at Kentucky Speedway which was the sixth time in six races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year that he finished between seventh and 12th.

That level of consistency makes him one of the easiest drivers to handicap on this track type. Often that is much more valuable than a top-five finish.
Jul 8 - 11:34 PM

Jamie McMurray posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Quaker State 400 by Advance Auto Parts at Kentucky Speedway with a speed of 186.780 mph.

He was eighth-fastest in Happy Hour. Combined together, those speeds are a good indication that he will challenge for a top-10 in Saturday night’s race.
Jul 7 - 2:49 PM

Jamie McMurray started the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway in second and like most drivers this week, he seesawed up and down the grid. He finished 10th.

It is important for McMurray to score strong results since there are now 10 drivers who have staked a claim to the playoffs with a win. McMurray needs to stay as high in the points as possible and consistent top-15s are doing the trick.
Jun 25 - 7:47 PM

Jamie McMurray earned his second career Michigan International Speedway top-five and the first in the past 12 years when he crossed under checkers fifth in the FireKeepers Casino 400.

McMurray was favored to score a top-10 based on the fact that he has finished that well in three of his last four Michigan races and had another single digit run at Auto Club Speedway this spring. When a driver outperforms lofty expectations, he is a great value.
Jun 18 - 7:13 PM

Jamie McMurray finished seventh in the AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway, which was his seventh consecutive top-15 finish of the year.

Since leaving Daytona, McMurray has finished in the top 15 on 11 occasions in the past 12 races. That has made him one of the most consistent racers each week even though top-fives are kind of rare.
Jun 4 - 6:45 PM

Jamie McMurray posted the quickest 10-lap average in Saturday morning practice for the AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover with a speed of 156.448 mph.

McMurray also had the eighth-fastest single lap in the first practice and that gives him a good balance this week. He will need it because he qualified mid-pack in 19th and will have to use some patience to get to the front.
Jun 3 - 12:05 PM

Jamie McMurray posted the quickest average speed in final practice for the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway with a 180.914 during his lap 22-31 run.

Speed over the long haul is important for a 600-mile race and that bodes well for his handicap. Last fall’s 10th-place finish was his first top-10 in four races, but he swept the top five at Charlotte in 2014 and enters this week with a perfect record of top-10s in four similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races. He should be able to crack the top 10 Sunday night.
May 27 - 9:04 PM

Jamie McMurray finished fifth in the All-star race, which was his second career top-five in the exhibition race.

His last top-five was a win in 2014. McMurray and his teammate Kyle Larson have been exceptional on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year and they should be on players’ radar screens for the Coke 600.
