Jamie McMurray
Born in Joplin, Missouri, USA.
He is best known for winning the 2002 UAW-GM Quality 500 as a substitute driver for Sterling Marlin in his second Cup start, and is one of only three drivers to win both the Daytona 500 and Brickyard 400 in the same year. He currently competes full-time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, driving the No. 1 Chevrolet SS for Chip Ganassi Racing.

Chip Ganassi Racing announced that McMurray would run the 24 Hours of Daytona in 2015 in the No. 02 car with Tony Kanaan, Scott Dixon, and Cup teammate Kyle Larson. The team won the event, and McMurray joined A. J. Foyt and Mario Andretti as the only drivers to win the Daytona 500 and 24 Hours of Daytona.
