Sweet Home Alabama: McMurray and the No. 1 team will return to Superspeedway racing this weekend at Talladega. After an impressive February Speedweek's at Daytona coming home with the 500 trophy, the team certainly looks to be a contender at the 2.66 tri-oval. McMurray has won the last two restrictor-plate races in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series having won the 2009 fall event at Talladega and the 2010 Daytona 500. His victory marked his best finish at Talladega where he also has four top-five's and five top-10's. His best start was in the 2003 fall race when he started on the outside pole.

Texas Recap: McMurray led early for 10 laps in the Samsung Mobile 500 and spent most of the day running in the top 15. However, McMurray found himself involved in a nine-car incident on lap 317, with nowhere to go. The wreck forced McMurray and the team to the garage settling for a 30th-place finish.

Meet with McMurray: Attention Race Fans- Come to the local Bass Pro Shops located in Leeds, AL at 5000 Bass Pro Boulevard this Thursday, April 22 where Jamie McMurray will be on-site from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (CST). McMurray will be participating in a 30 minute Question and Answer Session immediately followed by an hour autograph session (one autograph per person, as time allows).
