Jamie McMurray has persevered most of this season and has been running at the end of every race with only two top-10s to show for his effort. One of these was a fourth at Talladega SuperSpeedway, but he has failed to complete all the laps in two races since.
McMurray has run well enough to maintain the 14th-place position in the points. Unless his results improve, however, there are a lot of drivers lined up between him and 20th who would love to take his position in the Chase. May 25 - 8:21 PM

Danica Patrick apparently blew the engine on the No. 10 in the opening minutes of practice for the AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway. She oiled down the track and collected teammate Tony Stewart and Jamie McMurray. According to Patrick outside of the media center, McMurray has a slight injury to his elbow.

The damage appears to be significant enough that all three drivers will need to roll out backups. If Stewart or McMurray do not change their engines, they should not have to go to the back of the pack after qualification. Patrick will almost certainly have to replace both the engine and the car.

In his last 12 starts on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track, Jamie McMurray has finished 20th or better in 11 races. His outlier was a 21st at Atlanta Motor Speedway this spring and his average finish in that span of race was slightly worse than 14th.

McMurray would have an almost perfect record on this track type if not for an accident in the 2015 Atlanta race. He has not scored a top-five on these courses since 2014, but he ended that season with back-to-back results of third and fifth at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway respectively.

McMurray’s time was set in the draft and is representative of how fast the pack was going. McMurray tends to step up in high-profile races and has two wins on this track with the latest coming in 2013. His last two years have not been as productive though; he has only one top-25 in four starts.

Jamie McMurray sits 13th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup points’ standings, but he has done so with consistency instead of raw power. His Duck Commander 500 13th-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway was only his second top-15 of 2016.

As McMurray’s salary cap decreases in NASCAR.com Fantasy Live and Draft Kings, he becomes a better value. Fantasy players should also expect him to improve his results in the next couple of months as this team gets into a rhythm.

Jamie McMurray earned the worst finish of his season last week at Martinsville Speedway. He crossed under the checkers one lap off the pace in 23rd.

McMurray sits 13th in the standings and as a result, he does not have much room for error. Martinsville should have been a track on which he was a strong dark horse and should have made up some ground. His last start on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track was just outside the top 15. He was 16th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Jamie McMurray surged into 10th on the final lap of the Auto Club 400 and finished there. That was one of only about 10 laps he spent inside the top 10.

Jamie McMurray finished worse than he started nine times in his last 11 Auto Club Speedway attempts, including a pair of 17th-place results in 2010 after sweeping the pole in both races that year. The 2010 season was the last time this track hosted two events in a year.

The good news is that two races in which he finished better came in his last two attempts. In 2014 he scored his first top-10 in his last 20 attempts after starting 25th. Last year he improved from 26th to 21st—and this year, he started the weekend with the 26th-fastest speed in the first practice session.

Denny Hamlin may have posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Folds of Honor Quicktrip 500, but McMurray had the quickest 10-lap average with a speed of 181.480 mph during his first 10 laps on the track.

McMurray logged 56 laps total and brushed the wall midway through practice, but his damage was minimal. As a moderately-priced driver in most games, he will be a great value who could fly under the radar screen.
