Atlanta: Jamie McMurray preview

HAVOLINE TEAM FACTS: * Chassis: The Havoline team will race chassis ...


* Chassis: The Havoline team will race chassis #307. This is the same car that the team tested with last week at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

* McMurray won the NASCAR Busch Series race last fall at Atlanta Motor Speedway and finished seventh last fall in his first Winston Cup Series race at Atlanta.

* McMurray has scored one victory and three top-10 finishes in just nine NASCAR Winston Cup Series starts.

* McMurray and the Havoline team come to Atlanta 21st in NASCAR Winston Cup Series points and currently lead the Raybestos Rookie-of-the-Year standings.


"I'm really looking forward to getting back to Atlanta," McMurray said. "After winning the Busch race there last fall and finishing seventh in the Winston Cup race, I'm ready to get back to a place where I've had good runs. After the weekend we had in Vegas, it'll be nice to come to a track where you've had some success."

"We tested Atlanta last week and had a very good test," McMurray added. "Atlanta is the fastest track we go to and it's always a great place to race. You can pass, and the team that makes the best adjustments during the race will be up front at the end of the race. Hopefully that will be us."

"Everyone on this Havoline team continues to get to know each other better with each new race," McMurray said. "I think the chemistry on the team is coming together well and (crew chief) Donnie (Wingo) is doing a great job getting everyone on the same page. We should be good in Atlanta."
