Overton’s 400 – Chicagoland Speedway: Post-Race
No. 1 McDonald’s Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
Start: 13th
Finish: 12th
Standings: 20th (58 points behind 16th; final playoff spot)


  • McMurray started 13th, and overcame damage to the nose of the No. 1 Chevrolet in the early stages, to bring home a 12th-place finish, his third straight top-12 at Chicagoland Speedway
  • The caution flag was shown five today, for a total of 23 laps. The lead changed 24 times among 10 drivers.

“We really fought with the car being loose on entry most of the day. We had a good McDonald’s Chevy and I was finally able to try and start working the high groove late in the race and that helped us to pick up several positions on that last run. It was a tough day battling the heat, but the guys on pit road did a good job making adjustments all day on our pit stops. I got some damage to the nose on the car early in the race, so to be able to get that repaired and overcome the loss of track position I felt pretty good with at 12th-place result. I thought we had a top-10 car, so we just missed by a little.”

MENCS teams will head to Daytona International Speedway next week for the Coke Zero Sugar 400 on Saturday, Jul. 7. NBC, MRN affiliates and SiriusXM NASCAR Channel 90 will have live coverage beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
