Jamie McMurray Quotes:

"I'm really excited about getting behind the wheel of the Top-Flite Dodge this weekend in Fontana. Rusty (Wallace, team owner) has put together a great team and Blake (Bainbridge, crew chief) has worked hard to give us some great race cars for this season. We're running the same chassis we finished second with at Homstead last November, so I know it's a great racecar.

I'm also looking forward to giving everyone at Top-Flite a reason to cheer on Saturday. It's cool to be associated with a new sponsor in NASCAR. I've had the chance to do a few appearances for them already this year, and it's great to see the excitement around this program. I have no doubt we're going to have a great season in the Top-Flite Dodge."
