The duo also announced Friday they'll team together to run the inaugural Grand-Am race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in July. They've been teammates the last two years with Dixon and Franchitti for the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona race, but will be a two-driver tandem at the Brickyard.
''I think it's good for our racing relationship to get to go do things like this,'' McMurray said. ''It seems like every year after the Rolex race, we're closer. I think that's really important for the NASCAR side, for us to be closer and want to help each other more. When we go do that race, it seems like it does that automatically.
So, I'm looking forward to getting to go up and do the test and then the race.''
Cool deal. Doesn't Tony want to run this race too? Would like to see Jamie win a grand am race, has came close in the 24 hours the last two years.
