Jamie McMurray: New Team, New Challenges, New Wins?

When you think of Jamie McMurray, you think of the Crown Royal No.26 Rousch Fenway Ford car pictured above. McMurray finished 37th at the 2009 Daytona 500, 42nd at the 2009 Aarons 499 at Talladega and 18th at Homestead Miami, the last race of the season. He did win at the AMP Energy 500 at Talladega; a victory under caution. McMurray is best at superspeedways, where he has two wins and eight top fives.

We all know that Rousch-Fenway is a great team as seen by Jamie McMurray's teammates Greg Biffle, Matt Kenseth and David Ragan, but maybe McMurray just didn't fit. The 2010 season brings a new team for Jamie McMurray the No.1 Bass Pro Shop Chevrolet for Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing. As many of you already know, the previous driver of that car, Martin Truex Jr., is now racing the No. 56 for Michael Waltrip Racing.

So far this season McMurray's luck has been very good. He finished 3rd at the 2010 Budweiser Shootout and 6th in the Gatorade Duels at Daytona. I am very excited to see if a new team, new sponsors and a new manufacturer will equal McMurray spinning right into Victory Lane!!
