FAST FACTS

In six starts at California Speedway, McMurray averages a 7.0 finish -- this is second best among all active drivers.

Statistically speaking, Fontana is McMurray's best track on the NASCAR circuit. McMurray's next best track is his hometown track, Kansas Speedway, where he averages an 11th-place finish.

McMurray on racing at California Speedway: "I'm looking forward to going back to Fontana this weekend. Fontana is a really great track to visit for a lot of reasons, but this weekend I'm looking forward to a good finish. In the past, I've had a lot of success at this track. I don't know what it is about Fontana, but I definitely enjoy running there. It's a track where you have to hit your marks all day, have a fast car, and be there in the end -- when it counts. Bob and the guys back at the shop built a brand-new car for this weekend, which we're all excited about running. I'm looking forward to giving the Smirnoff ICE Ford Fusion a great run this weekend at Fontana."

Crew Chief Bob Osborne on racing at California Speedway: "I think this will be a good weekend in Fontana for the Smirnoff ICE team. We are taking a brand-new car, which all the guys back at the shop have worked really hard on over the last few weeks. Jamie runs particularly well at Fontana, so hopefully with some good, solid pit stops, a great run by Jamie, and a bit of luck, we can leave California with a top-10, maybe even a top-five finish."
