CONCORD, N.C. (January 24, 2008) - Jamie McMurray, driver of the No. 26 Crown Royal® / IRWIN Tools Ford Fusion will not be present at the Lowe's Motor Speedway Media Tour this afternoon. It's not because McMurray is testing a racecar, or at a sponsor appearance, but serving his civic duty at the Iredell County Courthouse.

"I can't believe that I'm going to miss the media tour this year," said McMurray. "Instead of being the driver of the No. 26 Crown Royal Ford Fusion, I'm Juror No. 7 at the Iredell County Courthouse, after being selected for jury duty earlier this week. So rather than joining my teammates at Roush Fenway Racing this afternoon, I'll be at the courthouse serving my civic duty.

"I'm looking forward to returning to Daytona in a couple weeks and hope to catch up with all the media when I get there. We have some really exciting things coming up with both Crown Royal and IRWIN Industrial Tools. The No. 26 Crown Royal Ford Fusion will have a new look when we return to Daytona - we're running the Cask No. 16 paint scheme on it. It's a great looking car that I hope we can return to Victory Lane for Crown Royal."
