Daytona and Indy
One of three drivers to win both the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400 in the same year, the other two being Dale Jarett in 1996 and Jimmie Johnson in 2006. Johnson is the only one to win both races and the championship in the same year.
Between McMurray's wins in the Daytona 500 and Brickyard 400 and Dario Franchitti's win in the Indianapolis 500, team owner Chip Ganassi achieved a motorsports trifecta, winning all three races in the same year, a feat that many don't see happening again anytime soon.
Won his first race in just his second start while serving as a relief driver for Sterling Marlin.
Has been nicknamed "Big Mac" by Fox Commentator Mike Joy and "Majors McMurray" by ESPN's Allen Bestwick, on account that he wins NASCAR's biggest events.
