"I don't know anyone who doesn't like Jimmie," 2010 Daytona 500 champion Jamie McMurray said. "I feel like he's the guy that you would like not to like because he does win all the time. He's got a beautiful wife. He's got great-looking kids. He just kind of like has everything. But he's just always so nice."
"It's just so hard to get both organizations good at the same time," McMurray said. "And this race, the Daytona 500 and the Indy 500 are races of strategy. You see guys dominate those races and not win. So it's remarkable what he's been able to put together, the people he's been able to hire. I feel very honored to get to be a part of that accomplishment."
