No. 1 McDonald’s Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
- McMurray was able to overcome a two-lap deficit to get back and finish on the lead lap.

- McMurray ran his final full-time MENCS race tonight at Homestead-Miami Speedway; finishing his career to-date with 582 starts, 11 poles, seven wins, and 63 top-five and 168 top-10 finishes.
- The caution flag was shown five times for a total of 26 laps and the lead changed 22 times among seven drivers.
“Not the way that we wanted to finish the season, but our guys made another good effort. We struggled early and got down a couple of laps. With the help of a couple of timely cautions we were able to race our way back into the ‘free pass’ position and get back on the lead lap at the Stage 2 break. We were able to work back inside the top-20. I am thankful for the teammates and friends that I have made here at Chip Ganassi Racing over the past nine seasons since coming back to the organization. I look forward to seeing what the future holds and grateful to have had such a great team around me here along with great partners like McDonald’s, Cessna and many others that make this all possible.”
