Jamie McMurray will start the playoffs as the lowest seeded driver in 16th with 2,003 total points.
McMurray was one of three drivers who made the playoffs on points alone this season.
“Our cars have just been awesome all year long and it’s been the best season I have had, as far as the most consistent, and that just comes from them giving us really good cars,” McMurray said.
2017 marks McMurray’s third consecutive playoff berth and third overall. In his two previous playoff appearances, McMurray ultimately finished 13th in driver’s standings.
McMurray has won at two of the 10 tracks in the playoffs; Talladega Superspeedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.
McMurray has not scored a victory in NASCAR’s premiere series since Talladega in October of 2013.
