McMurray picks up new sponsor
Jamie McMurray hopes his new sponsor Cessna will carry his team to new heights.
NASCAR on FOX brings live coverage of the Sprint Cup race at Dover International Speedway on Sunday. The green flag drops at 1 p.m. ET, with coverage on FOX beginning at 12:30 p.m. ET.
Cessna Aircraft Company will support the Earnhardt Ganassi Racing’s No. 1 team in the Sprint Cup Series as well as Chip Ganassi’s IndyCar and Grand-Am Road Racing efforts.
McMurray finished 21st in the Cup point standings last season. The team never recovered after starting the year with a wreck at Daytona International Speedway and an engine failure the following week at Phoenix International Raceway.
McMurray, 26, has six career Cup wins – three which were earned in 2010 when he returned to EGR after a stint with Roush Fenway Racing. That season McMurray won NASCAR’s two most prestigious events, the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400. He capped off the year with a victory in the fall race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, McMurray’s last trip to victory lane.
