Fast Facts

* In his seven Cup starts at the Talladega Superspeedway, Jamie McMurray has one top-five and two top-ten finishes.

* McMurray will be racing chassis number RK-192 this weekend, which raced in Daytona earlier this year.

Jamie McMurray on racing at Talladega: "I'm looking forward to heading to Talladega this weekend. We are taking our Daytona car which was just awesome during the 500 weekend. We qualified sixth and were able to run in the top-five and top-ten for much of the race. We were running eighth with just four laps to go when we were caught up in a crash that ended our day, but the car was really good up until then."

Crew Chief Bob Osborne on racing at Talladega: "I'm not making a lot of changes from what this team did in Daytona earlier this year, so based upon their performance in Daytona, I am optimistic about our upcoming weekend in Talladega. It's a good car and Jamie was able to run up front with it."
