James Christopher "Jamie" McMurray (born June 3, 1976) is a professional American race car driver. McMurray is best known for winning the 2002 UAW-GM Quality 500 as a substitute driver in his second Winston Cup start, and is one of three drivers to win both the Daytona 500 and Brickyard 400 in the same year. He currently drives the #1 Bass Pro Shops/McDonald's Chevrolet Impala in the Sprint Cup Series for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing with crew chief Kevin Manion.

In 1999, McMurray made four starts in the Craftsman Truck Series. In 2000, he ran 15 Craftsman Truck races and posted one top-five and four top-ten finishes. During 2001 and 2002, he competed full-time in the NASCAR Busch Series, driving the #27 Williams Travel Centers Chevrolet Monte Carlo for Brewco Motorsports. The latter year was better for McMurray, as he won two races and finished sixth in the overall points standings.

Before the fall race at Richmond in 2002, Chip Ganassi announced McMurray would be the driver of a Texaco-Havoline sponsored Dodge in 2003. Ganassi planned to have Jamie drive the #42 Dodge for seven races in 2002.
