Jamie McMurray, driver No. 1 McDonald’s / Cessna Chevrolet
McMurray will make his 30th Monster Energy Cup Series start at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday night. In 29 previous starts, McMurray has recorded three top-five and 11 top-10 finishes at Bristol. He’s completed 14,213 or 14,527 laps (97.8%) and has led 179 circuits around the World’s Fastest Half Mile.
“Bristol is an intense track that requires focus every lap,” said McMurray. “When the race car is good, you have a lot of fun, but if you aren’t very good it’s like you are in the way of everyone else all night. One of the things that makes Bristol so much fun is that it is a throwback to how most every driver started out, racing short-tracks around the country on a Saturday night. The night race is especially a crazy atmosphere when the stands are full to see how many people are crowded around that half-mile track.”
