Fast Facts

* In his five Cup starts at the California Speedway, Jamie McMurray has three top-five's and four top-ten finishes.

* McMurray will be running car number 72 this weekend in California. This car was raced for the first time in the season finale last year in Homestead with Kenny Wallace behind the wheel. The No. 26 team took this car to the Las Vegas test three weeks ago with good results - McMurray had the fastest car on the second day of the three-day test.

Jamie McMurray on racing at California: "It's good to have Daytona behind us. I was very pleased with the way our cars ran while we were there. We obviously didn't get the finish that we were looking for, but the speed was definitely there. We had a good test in Las Vegas a few weeks ago so I feel confident about our intermediate program right now going in to California. Hopefully, we can come out with a strong finish and move up in the standings."

Crew Chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at California: "We're looking forward to racing out in California this weekend. The car that we're taking out there we tested in Vegas a few weeks ago and it was pretty fast. Jamie has had some good finishes in Fontana so I know he can get around this track."
