Jamie McMurray has the 21st-best average finish on the combined plate tracks of Daytona International Speedway and Talladega SuperSpeedway with a 22.00 in 53 attempts.
McMurray tends to rise in big races and he boasts four wins and another two runner-up finishes. He has not earned a top-10 in his last eight starts, however, and most of his bad luck has been caused by crash damage. Despite that, McMurray’s nine top-fives ranks him seventh on that chart among active, fulltime drivers. Feb 5 - 11:42 AM

Ford Chip Ganassi Racing (FCGR) announced today that they will field two (No. 01 and No. 02) Ford EcoBoost Prototypes entries at the Rolex 24 At Daytona in 2016.

Scott Dixon joins teammates Tony Kanaan, Kyle Larson and Jamie McMurray in the No. 02 car to defend their 2015 win. McMurray has competed in the Rolex 24 At Daytona seven times with FCGR (2005, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015). With his victory in the 2015 Rolex 24 At Daytona, he joined the exclusive company of two other racing legends, Mario Andretti and AJ Foyt, as the only drivers to win both the Rolex 24 At Daytona and the Daytona 500. McMurray is only one of three drivers to have won the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400 in a single season (2010).-Chip Ganassi Racing

There are several strong picks each year on short, flat tracks, but Jamie McMurray is not always one of the names associated with that course type. Both of his second-place finishes in 2015 came on them, however, as well as another fourth-place finish on a minimally-banked track.

McMurray was an all-around good value with top-15s in 69 percent of his starts, but if fantasy owners can identify opportunities such as this that others miss, they can capitalize and make up ground on the competition.

Jamie McMurray (#1 McDonald's Chevrolet SS) finished 13th in the November 22nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The Chip Ganassi Racing driver started 22nd in the lineup and completed all laps of the 267-lap event. McMurray, who competed in all of the season's 36 races, scored four top-fives, 10 top-10s and closed out the season 13th in the final 2015 Sprint Cup Series driver championship standings.

Jamie McMurray finished 15th last week at Phoenix International Raceway, which was his third straight top-15 since suffering a blown engine at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

The statistic is positive, but McMurray is heading in the wrong direction. He finished second at Martinsville Speedway, was 10th at Texas Motor Speedway, and then 15th. If this progression continues and he slips outside of the top 15, he will not be a good fantasy value at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Jamie McMurray battled Jeff Gordon hard and clean, but had to settle for second when the checkers waved over the Goody's 500 at Martinsville Speedway. It was his second second-place finish in the 2015 season.

Notably his other second-place finish this year came well back in March and it was earned on another short, flat track of Phoenix International Raceway. That makes McMurray one of the favorites to score another top-five two weeks from now when the series returns to Arizona.

Jamie McMurray was the fastest non-Chase contender in final practice for the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. His top speed of 188.062 mph was the seventh-fastest on the speed chart.

McMurray missed being part of the round of 12 by one position when he finished behind Dale Earnhardt Jr. last week at Dover International Speedway. He has been hit-or-miss on this track during his career and fantasy owners have the right to be worried about his odds. If he fits the final niche on one’s roster, he could still be a good value.

Jamie McMurray earned his best finish in 20 races and snapped a 13-race streak of sub-10th-place finishes, but it was not quite enough to advance to the final round. He ended the AAA 400 fourth, but tied with Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the points at the cutoff mark. By finishing third this week, the No. 88 had the tiebreaker and McMurray has been eliminated from the Chase.

This was McMurray’s first Chase. Last year Aric Almirola and AJ Allmendinger were also eliminated in the first round of the Chase after getting their first berth, but the encouraging news for McMurray fans is that he ran much better than he has in several months. He will become more fantasy relevant as a result.

As predicted in pre-race coverage at Rotoworld, Jamie McMurray finished 14th in the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. This was the eighth consecutive oval track race in which he finished 11th to 16th.

McMurray has finished between 11th and 16th in 54 percent of his starts this year, so predicting another result in that range is a simple task for Dover International Speedway.

For the past two years, Jamie McMurray has been much better in the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire than during the summer 5-Hour Energy 301 and he enters with consecutive top-fives in the fall event.

There should not be much of a difference between to two races, but even if the advantage is psychological McMurray can use the help. After finishing 16th at Chicagoland Speedway last week, he is in the bottom four and in jeopardy of getting dropped out of the Chase.

Jamie McMurray finished 13th in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway, but he only needed to start the race to earn enough points to qualify for the Chase for the Championship.

McMurray’s effort may have been hindered slightly by an emphasis on Kyle Larson. Chip Ganassi Racing placed a lot of effort on getting the sophomore into the playoffs, but he needed to win in order to accomplish that feat. Larson finished one position ahead of McMurray, but that shows consistency that can be built upon.

Jamie McMurray posted the quickest 10-lap average in the final practice session for the Pure Michigan 400. His speed of 187.400 mph came during laps 12 through 21.

McMurray seems to have given up some top-end speed to achieve durability. His fastest single lap in final practice was 20th-best at 189.294. Michigan is prone to long runs, however, and if he can get his car tight enough in traffic, he will be a factor.

Jamie McMurray entered the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway with a three-race streak of top-15s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but he was unable to keep that alive. He slipped to 19th in the final rundown in that event and was one lap off the pace.

The end of the Coke 600 was defined by fuel mileage strategies and a long green flag run. Under other circumstances McMurray might have been able to maintain the lead lap and finish about 15th. Fantasy owners should expect a result in the low teens and plan accordingly.

Jamie McMurray is one of several drivers who will roll out a backup for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. He was involved in the nine-race crash that occurred 10 minutes into in the first session.

Midway through final practice McMurray was about midway down the speed chart. Raw speed is not particularly important in pack racing, but the No. 1 team has to feel better after shaking the car down.

Seven is supposed to be a lucky number and it has certainly been that way for Jamie McMurray. He enters the NASCAR off week with three consecutive finishes of precisely seventh, which has solidified his position in the points’ standings.

McMurray had four other top-10s in the previous 12 races, but only two of them came in back-to-back affairs. The road course of Sonoma Raceway could interrupt his streak, but it will not diminish his strength.
