Mcmurray Heating Up

It's been an eventful last few weeks for Jamie McMurray, who in addition to getting engaged has been on an upswing as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season winds down.

McMurray kept his recent resurgence going in Sunday's Checker O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Phoenix International Raceway when he finished third for the second consecutive week.

"Yeah, I mean it started off so bad with actually falling out of the top 35, it's nice to get to end the season that we are," an upbeat McMurray said. "

"I think the guys that typically end well start next season well, so it makes racing so much more fun. It's been a really exciting week for me, getting engaged - what about that? That's pretty exciting stuff, huh? So, it's been a fun week."

Earlier in the year, McMurray was rumored to be on his way out of Roush Fenway Racing. But his second half surge seems to have his future on secure ground.

"I was just talking to the engineer about that in the trailer, and our cars have been very good over the last, like, three months," he said. "We've been a lot faster the second half of the year; things just haven't worked out - whether you just got caught up in accidents, things have just clicked. There's been a little more fortune on the race track."

McMurray completely credits his team for turning things around in recent weeks.

"They just have made really good adjustments to my car, and I think I've probably been a little better driver explaining what I'm feeling," McMurray said. "When we unloaded at Texas, you kind of know the tone of your weekend when you run your first few laps, like if it drives good we can work on this or you have weekends where you think, "We'll never get this right,' and at Texas we unloaded and I thought, "This is going to be tough.' And we came into the garage and made we made a few adjustments and I pulled back out and I'm like, 'There you go. It feels great again.' So, they just have done a really good job of being pretty methodical on the adjustments, and they seem to work."
