MCMURRAY ON TALLADEGA:

“Survival is the first word that comes to mind about racing at Talladega. Although I have been fortunate enough to win at Talladega a couple of times, superspeedway racing is not my favorite. There are so many unknowns and just things out of your control that can happen in a split-second.  Hopefully we can have some luck on our side and be in contention at the end of the day.”
