Counting down to race weekend with car No. 26

Monday, August 10, 2009

In 26 days, the first full weekend of night racing will come to Atlanta Motor Speedway... 

The weekend kicks off Sept. 5 with Sprint Cup Series qualifying and the Nationwide Series Degree V12 300. Then, on Sept. 6, it's the first Cup night race in Atlanta with the running of the Pep Boys Auto 500! 

With 26 days to go until race weekend, here's a look at one of the drivers that will take to the track during that time, Jamie McMurray, driver of the No. 26 car.

McMurray had an impressive debut weekend in his first Cup race in Atlanta in 2002, finishing seventh the day after he won the Nationwide race. His best finish came in the fall of 2005 when he came in sixth.

Overall, he has four top ten finishes in Atlanta in 14 races.

McMurray has two top-five qualifying efforts at Atlanta, including a career-best  starting spot of third in the Kobalt Tools 500 this past March.
