Jamie McMurray 2015 Season Driver Preview

It would have been easy for Jamie McMurray to exit last season frustrated. Despite having a strong car early in many races, his No. 1 Chevrolet rarely finished where he felt it could. The team’s only winning outing came in the exhibition, non-points All-Star Race in May.

The bubble watch is on.

We’re pretty sure we know the teams in contention for the No. 1 seeds and teams that are safely in, which of course leaves the bubble — all the teams that have done some good things and some bad things through the first three months of the season.

 

For better or worse, most of those teams can get off the bubble, either solidifying their Tournament credentials or playing their way out.

When Will Kentucky Lose Its First Game?

Which of the Wildcats' final eight opponents have what it takes to knock off Big Blue?
When Will Kentucky Basketball Lose Its First Game?

Kentucky isn’t the only team chasing history in the SEC.

 

The Wildcats took another team’s best shot Saturday in a 67-61 win over Florida, but as has been the case in close calls all season, Kentucky continued its march to an undefeated regular season and more.
