No. 1 Cessna Chevrolet SS
Jamie McMurray will make his 15th career MENCS start at Sonoma Raceway this weekend. In 14 previous starts he has completed 1,546 of 1,547 laps and has led 41 circuits. He has two top-five finishes to his credit, with an average start of 13.6 and average finish of 16.3.
McMurray has three career poles at Sonoma Raceway, including two consecutive (2013, 14). He also leads all active drivers in Coors Light Poles at Sonoma with three.
“Sonoma is just such a unique place. Not just because it is one of only two road course races for us, but because it is so technical. This is a demanding race because we run such a limited amount of right and left turns. We usually experience hot temperatures at this race and it can get crazy hot in the car which adds to the fatigue factor. One simple mistake can ruin a lap, so you have to remain focused. I’ve been lucky enough to win a few poles here and start up front and we have been really good there, hopefully we can put it all together and have a solid weekend in the Cessna Chevy.”
