A handful of Sprint Cup teams have made crew chief changes in hopes of making a sprint to the Chase. But, are more changes on the way?
Jamie McMurray has reached a multi-year deal with Earnhardt Ganassi Racing to remain as driver for the team’s No. 1 Sprint Cup Chevy, according to ESPN.com.
Spotter Keith Barnwell will leave Earnhardt Ganassi Racing’s No. 1 Chevy and driver Jamie McMurray to join Michael Waltrip Racing to serve in the same role for the No. 56 Toyota and driver Martin Truex Jr.
Jamie McMurray cleared Kyle Busch off Turn 2 after a restart on Lap 314 and pulled away from Busch to win Saturday night’s Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Jamie McMurray held off Kyle Busch and stopped Busch one spot short of a historic win Saturday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Kyle Busch held off David Reutimann and Jamie McMurray to win the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. With the win, Busch made NASCAR history, becoming the first driver to sweep three NASCAR national touring events at the same track in the same race weekend.
In retrospect, letting Jamie McMurray go was a mistake for Jack Roush. But, given the circumstances at the time, Roush shouldn’t be kicking himself over it.
Jamie McMurray used a two-tire gamble to become only the third driver to win the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400 in the same season, joining Dale Jarrett and Jimmie Johnson. The win also gave team owner Chip Ganassi victories in the Daytona 500, the Indy 500, and the Brickyard 400 in the same year.
Kevin Harvick, polesitter for the Coke Zero 400 due to qualifying being rained out, won the wreck-filled restrictor plate race at Daytona International Speedway. On a green-white-checkered finish, Harvick drove by teammate Clint Bowyer for the lead, then held off Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne to win.
Jimmie Johnson earned his first career Sprint Cup road course win in the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Infineon Raceway after Marcos Ambrose made a mistake under caution in the closing laps, handing Johnson the lead.
