- This is the inaugural race on Charlotte Motor Speedway’s 2.28-mile road course, which they are titling the ROVAL — a 17-turn course that utilizes the infield road course with the majority of the 1.5-mile super speedway. The race will serve as the cutoff race for the Round of 16 in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.
- McMurray has tested the ROVAL twice, including the initial test last October. The course has gone through several changes since the initial test.
- McMurray has scored three total Cup victories at Charlotte Motor Speedway on the 1.5-mile oval, including two victories in the fall event and one in the All-Star Race.
- McMurray’s history at Charlotte Motor Speedway is rich. In 2002, McMurray became the quickest winner in NASCAR Cup Series history, when he won the Bank of America 500 in only his second Cup start.
