* In his seven Cup starts at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, Jamie McMurray has three top-ten finishes.

* McMurray will be running car number 65 this weekend in Atlanta. This is the same race car that won in Pocono in July, 2005.

* Atlanta will mark McMurray's first run in the IRWIN Industrial Tools Ford Fusion. The weekend will showcase a special IRWIN paint scheme featuring the IRWIN Vise-Grip.

Jamie McMurray on racing at Atlanta: "We're coming off a disappointing finish in Las Vegas, so we'll definitely be looking to spring back this weekend in Atlanta. I've had some decent finishes there over the past few races, so I'm looking forward to getting back there with my new team. We'll be sporting the blue and yellow colors of IRWIN this weekend for the first time this season, and I hope we can come out with a good finish for those guys."

Crew Chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Atlanta: "We're bringing our Pocono winner from last season to Atlanta. Of course, it's pretty much a new car with the changes we've made to it since then, but I think it will be alright. We just couldn't hit the right combination of adjustments in Vegas, so we'll be examining that this week as we prepare for Atlanta."
