In seven starts at Richmond International Raceway, McMurray has two top-10 finishes and an average finish of 22.4.

McMurray on racing at Richmond International Raceway: "The Richmond fall race is always an exciting weekend. We are back under the lights for a Saturday night race and of course, you have the closing of who makes it into the Chase. It will be really interesting to see on Saturday night. I enjoy running at Richmond, although my record doesn't show that. Even though Richmond is a short track, you carry a lot of high speeds and there isn't one point in the night where you are out there running alone without the pressure of someone else. It will be a good weekend for the 26 team; we are back in the IRWIN car, which has a pretty good track record this season."

Crew Chief Bob Osborne on racing at Richmond International Raceway: "I think the IRWIN team is looking forward to another run at Richmond. It's a Saturday night race, which is always a lot of fun. A lot of these guys started running on Saturday nights, so it always makes it even more exciting. We are taking a really good car to Richmond this weekend. It's the same car we ran at Richmond in the spring and the same car that placed well at Phoenix earlier this season. Overall, we are looking for a good run in Richmond, and hopefully, if can play our cards right, we can put this car in Victory Lane."
