Michigan History: Jamie McMurray will be making his 16th career NSCS start at Michigan this weekend when he takes the green flag in his No. 1 Philips Norelco Bodygroom Pro Chevrolet. McMurray's best NSCS start at the 2-mile track came this season when he qualified on the outside pole for the June race at MIS. His best finish came during this event in 2004 when he finished fourth. McMurray has one top-five and four top-10s at the Brooklyn, Michigan oval.

Last Weekend: Jamie McMurray and the No.1 McDonald's Team looked to continue their string of good runs with the Golden Arches on the hood as they headed to the second and final road course event of the 2010 NSCS season. The driver would impress early-on during Saturday morning's qualifying session by posting the second-fastest time, putting McDonald's on the front row for the third time this season. Starting from the outside-pole position, McMurray would race among the top five for the majority of the day, before finishing in the sixth-position.

In the Points: After McMurray's sixth-place finish last weekend at Watkins Glen the No. 1 team advanced two positions to 15th in the 2010 NSCS points standings. With four races remaining McMurray is now just 94 points out of 12th- the cutoff to the Chase.
