* Chassis: The Havoline team will race chassis #206. This is a new car that the team tested with back in January at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

* McMurray and the No. 42 Havoline team head to Las Vegas Motor Speedway coming off a fifth-place finish last weekend in the Subway 400 at North Carolina Speedway.

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

* McMurray comes to Las Vegas 18th in NASCAR Winston Cup Series points and currently leads the Raybestos Rookie-of-the-Year standings.


"Obviously, everyone on this Havoline team is pumped up and excited after our strong run last weekend at Rockingham," McMurray said. "We came and tested here back in January at Las Vegas and had a pretty decent test. I think we'll be in good shape for this weekend's race."

"The strong run last week really helped build momentum for this team," McMurray added. "This is a new team with a group of guys that have never worked together and (crew chief) Donnie Wingo has done a great job getting everyone to really work together well. I think our performance last weekend was proof of how strong this team is."

"Our goal this year is to run consistent each week and not run good one week, and then struggle the next," noted McMurray. "I think Las Vegas will be a good place for us to continue our consistent runs."
