Auburn/Cessna Sponsored Car Wins Talladega

Jamie McMurrayIt’s been a big weekend for Auburn.

First, the Tigers upset then-No. 7 Texas A&M Saturday 45-41 at Kyle Field. It was the second win over a ranked team this season for Auburn. On Sunday, Jamie McMurray won the NASCAR Camping World RV Sales 500 at Talladega Superspeedway while racing with a car outfitted with a Auburn paint scheme.

“It was cool to have Auburn on here,” said McMurray. “When they told me they were going to do the paint scheme here, I’m not a huge college football fan, but I know enough that this would be a 50/50 crowd here of some liking and some not.  So it was interesting.  It was fun to see the fans in the garage area either high five you or the opposite.”
