Jamie McMurray Quotes:

Thoughts on Bud Shootout: "I'm really excited to get to run in the Bud Shootout this year. I've watched that race on T.V. many times and have thought it would be cool to race in it. That was one of the first things that was going through my head last year in Homestead when we grabbed the Bud Pole Award. I was thinking, 'Man, I get to be in the Bud Shootout!'"

"I also think it will help this Texaco/Havoline team as it allows us to get more track time in preparation for the Daytona 500. It's almost like a test session for us in the draft."
