First Cup win

Chris Myers: What we do is we throw up photos of maybe something you haven't seen before, and we get an honest assessment/reaction. Some serious, some not so fun. Let's go back a little bit, October 13, 2002, the second Cup race in your career, and you won the race. What comes to mind?

Jamie McMurray: Uh..you know what, I'll never forget that night. It was a tough situation filling in for Sterling (Marlin), and it was incredible getting the win.

Jack Roush

Chris Myers: And the success brought you to a team run by this man, the "Cat in the Hat." Give us something we don't know about Jack Roush since you get to work with him on the inside.

Jamie McMurray: He has a great personality, a very funny guy, I don't think he'd ever let the outside world know that, but he likes to joke around a lot and he's a fun person to be around. He's not always as serious as what people take him, and the other thing that I think is incredible about Jack is how smart he is. He knows a lot about a lot of different things so I don't think you'll ever outwit him.

Autism

Chris Myers: Now, you do a lot for different charities, but autism awareness is one that hits close to home. Just tell people why it's important to you.

Jamie McMurray: Well, I have a niece with autism and I've seen the way that it has affected my sister, and her family and the medical costs and everything that goes along with having a child with autism and it effects 1 in every 166 kids so.

Join honorary chairmen Jamie McMurray and Elliott Sadler May 31, 2007 for the 6th Annual Drive for Autism Research Celebrity-Am Golf Outing to be held at the world-class DuPont Country Club located in the Brandywine Valley, Wilmington, Del.

Golfing

Chris Myers: Do you like to golf, or is it work for you.

Jamie McMurray: If you could see the result, it doesn't look that good.

Chris Myers: The swing you like then.

Jamie McMurray: I got my eye on the ball; the club is almost square.

Chris Myers: What's the best round you ever shot?

Jamie McMurray: Umm... 84.

Pamela Anderson

Chris Myers: And finally, a celebrity crush on her, you'd hope so. You've met her. She's out at the races.

Jamie McMurray: She's striking.

Chris Myers: It's a good photo. She personally sent that to us, "Make sure you show this to Jamie."

Jamie McMurray: Really?
