Jamie McMurray and No. 1 McDonald's Team

Pocono History: McMurray will be making his 15th start at Pocono Raceway when the team returns to the triangle shaped speedway in the mountains of Pennsylvania. His best start came in his last visit to the track with Ganassi when he won the pole in 2005. McMurray's best finish of ninth came during the first race at the speedway in 2004, and he matched that finish again at the second race in 2008.

Celebrating In Indy: After finishing second in the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway Sunday night, 2010 Daytona 500 Champion Jamie McMurray flew to Indianapolis Monday morning to congratulate, Ganassi teammate Dario Franchitti on his Indianapolis 500 win and to honor his team owner, Chip Ganassi, for doing something that no other car owner in the history of auto racing had ever done; win the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500 in the same season.
