Phoenix Recap: The Bass Pro Shops team started 18th on the one-mile tri-oval race track and would immediately battle with the balance of the No. 1 Chevrolet. The crew worked hard to improve the drivability of the Bass Pro Shops car, but the long, green flag runs during the middle of the race didn’t allow adequate time for major adjustments. In the closing laps, McMurray dodged multiple incidents of on-track melee and brought the No. 1 Bass Pro Shops/Allstate Chevrolet to the checkered flag for a 23rd-place finish.
