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. Mar 21 - 10:27 AM

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.

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.

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.

Jamie McMurray spent much of his day at Texas battling to stay on the lead lap or to regain the lap he ultimately lost. With a rash of cautions late in the AAA Texas 500, he got back on the same circuit as the leaders and finished fifth as chaos erupted during two green-white-checkered attempts.

That was McMurray’s second consecutive top-five on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track. He finished third in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte and should be on fantasy owners’ radar screens at Homestead in two weeks.

Jamie McMurray set a new qualification record and won the pole for Sunday’s Goody's 500 at Martinsville Speedway. His fastest lap was 18.954 seconds, which converts to 99.905 mph.

McMurray had one of the fastest cars this spring before contact with Dale Earnhardt Jr. cut a tire and sent him into the wall. It is safe to say that he has unfinished business and wants to dominate the race. The track record of 100.201 mph was set by Joey Logano this spring during the first session.

Jamie McMurray scraped the wall in the first practice session for the Goody's 500. He made minor contact.

McMurray will not need to roll out a backup car, which is good news for his owners. He swept the top 10 at Martinsville last year and was running with the leaders when he was wrecked by Dale Earnhardt Jr. this spring.

The Chip Ganassi Racing teammates Jamie McMurray and Kyle Larson had the best 10-lap averages at Talladega in the first practice session for the Geico 500. McMurray went 196.586 mph from his third through 12th laps, while Larson went 196.061 from laps two through 11.

Look for these drivers to run together for as long as they can on Sunday. McMurray is the defending winner from last fall and Larson can learn a lot by following him.

From the GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono this August through the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire three weeks ago, Jamie McMurray posted eight consecutive top-15s. Then, he suffered bad luck at Dover and Kansas to finish in the 20s twice. He needed to rebound at Charlotte and did just that with a third-place finish in the Bank of America 500.

Since he failed to make the Chase, McMurray is one of the best values in most salary cap games. The series heads to Talladega next week, which is a site where McMurray won last year to become one of the most recent spoilers in the Chase battle. McMurray failed to qualify for the playoffs in 2013.

Jamie McMurray was running fifth in the Hollywood Casino 400 with 10 laps remaining when he suffered a flat left front tire. He was forced to pit and fell to 25th in the final standings.

McMurray overcame contact with Jeff Gordon early in the race and climbed back into contention. He ran well enough to secure the fifth-best average running position of 8.29, but ultimately cost fantasy players a ton of points.
