Daytona 500 champ gets McDonald's sponsorship
McDonald's will sponsor the No. 1 Earnhardt Ganassi Racing Chevrolet and Jamie McMurray this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
According to sources, McMurray could be "lovin' it" with the Golden Arches for 10 additional races this season. McDonald's first entered the NASCAR arena in 1993 with team owner Junior Johnson and driver Hut Stricklin, but since 2005 has been connected with the Evernham/Gillett/Richard Petty Motorsports contingent.
McMurray, 33, won this season's Daytona 500 and is currently fourth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup point standings. He joked following his 500 win, "After we won Talladega, we went to McDonald's. I think tonight we will have a Big Mac."
McMurray is starting his seventh season on NASCAR's Cup tour and was reunited this season with his former owner Chip Ganassi. McMurray has four career Cup wins.
