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.
May 20 - 9:46 PM

Jamie McMurray is one of nine active drivers entered this week with an All-star win to his credit. He won in 2014.

The All-star race is host to some pretty amazing runs, but this should not be taken as a sign that McMurray is strong in the dash. That is his only top-five and one of just three top-10s in 10 starts.
May 20 - 6:39 PM

Jamie McMurray finished eighth in the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway, which was the fourth time this year on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks that he finished between seventh and 10th.

Consistency is extremely important when setting a fantasy roster. McMurray is one of four drivers who have now swept the top 10 on this track type along with Martin Truex Jr., Brad Keselowski, and Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Kyle Larson. McMurray has been the most consistent among them, however.
May 14 - 1:04 AM

Jamie McMurray snaked his way through a 17-car "Big One" crash on lap 169 of the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway and put himself in position to challenge for the win. He came up just short of Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and finished second.

McMurray made the move of the race at the end, however. He threaded the needle between Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch on the last lap, got doored by the No. 18 in the run the checkers, but kept his car straight. This was McMurray’s first top-five of the season.
May 7 - 6:29 PM

Jamie McMurray finished sixth in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway after starting the race 10th.

McMurray is still searching for his first top-five of the season, but this is his fifth top-10 in eight races on unrestricted tracks. He also has another pair of top-15s, making him one of the most consistent drivers in the field.
Apr 30 - 6:55 PM

Jamie McMurray has a worst finish of only 16th in his last seven attempts at Richmond International Raceway, with three top-fives and a 10th to offset it.

During that span, plus another effort in 2013, he finished on the lead lap in all but one race. The one doubt concerning him would be that his worst result of 16th came in this race last year.
Apr 28 - 4:21 PM

Jamie McMurray has earned the 10th-best average finish in the past six races with a 14.0.

That is especially impressive because he crashed and failed to finish at Martinsville Speedway two weeks ago. If one removes that outlier from his results, he has an average of 9.2 since leaving Daytona International Speedway with a best result of sixth and a worst of 15th.
