McMurray scrapes wall during Daytona 500 practice
Defending Daytona 500 champion Jamie McMurray scraped the wall
in practice and will switch to a backup car for NASCAR’s season
McMurray apparently drove over a broken brake rotor from his No.
1 Chevrolet, slicing his right-front tire and sending the car into
the wall Saturday.
McMurray was unharmed, but his car sustained some damage along
the right side. McMurray’s Earnhardt Ganassi Racing team decided to
switch to the backup car, the one McMurray finished second in last
April at Talladega.
McMurray says the crash did ”minimal damage”. He adds that the
team will send the primary car back to North Carolina for
McMurray won three races in 2010, including the Daytona 500 and
the Brickyard 400.
