McMurray is fresh off earning his second top five of the year. He didn’t earn his second last year until the season finale. Heading to Sonoma Raceway, McMurray is seventh in the points.
McMurray told NASCAR America’s Dave Burns he thinks he’ll have to win a race in order to get into the playoffs.
McMurray also said he always looks forward to Sonoma, a track he has two poles at in the last four years.
“For me that’s a track I think of every single year that we can win at,” McMurray said. “Our cars have been so good this year at different type tracks, we’ll be in contention this weekend and I’m look forward to that.”
McMurray had three poles total at Sonoma. His best finish is second in 2004, but he placed fourth in 2014. In 14 starts, he has an average finish of 16.3.
