Jamie McMurray Quotes:

Sonoma Thoughts: "I'm excited about the road course at Infineon Raceway this weekend. We had a great test there back in April and I feel good about having a strong run this weekend. I don't have a lot of experience on road courses, but I always enjoy racing on them. It's something different and creates a new challenge for you as a driver."

"This is a big weekend for my sponsor, Texaco/Havoline, since they're based down the road in San Ramon, Calif. So it would mean a lot to everyone to have a strong showing for them. If I can keep all four tires on the track and off the sand and dirt, we'll have a good weekend on the road course."
