Jamie McMurray has nothing to be ashamed of but he was so close to the biggest win of his career he could taste it. Instead the Joplin, Mo. native took third place at yesterday’s Brickyard 400. McMurray led on two different occasions for a total of 22 laps. He was in first place coming out of a caution on lap 145, but stalled and fell back to third place. Kevin Harvick was the quickest once the green flag was waved and he went on to win it. It was McMurray’s best finish of the season and he moved up four spots in the point standings to 21st place. St. Louis native Rusty Wallace finished 10th in the race and moved up a spot to 10th in the standings.
