This article was last updated by on

The former NASCAR driver Jamie McMurray’s wife, Christy Futrell, has been his backbone and pillar of support since his early racing days.

James Christopher McMurray, nicknamed “Jamie Mac,” is a former professional American car racing driver.

The driver raced in the NASCAR Cup Series full-time from 2003 to 2018. After that, he shifted to the Daytona 500 only in 2019 and 2021.

He is one of only three drivers to win the Brickyard 400 and the Daytona 500 in the same season, joining Dale Jarrett & Jimmie Johnson.

Furthermore, Jamie is the overall winner of the 2015 Rolex 24 at Daytona.

The 2003 Winston Cup Series Rookie of the Year is currently working as an analyst for Fox NASCAR.

The FOX Nascar Analyst has been married to Christy Futrell for over a decade.

Jamie and Christy then eventually exchanged their wedding vows in July 2009, after three years of their first encounter.

The duo welcomed their first child, a boy after one year of marriage on November 25, 2010, on Thanksgiving, and named him Carter Scott McMurray.

On February 11, 2013, they gave birth to their second child, this time a daughter naming her Hazel.

Jamie has established his charity, “The Jamie Murray Foundation,” in which Christy is also heavily involved.

The foundation aims to help people with autism and raise money for this cause nationwide.

The couple currently resides on Lake Norman in Mooresville, North Carolina.


Jamie grew up racing go-karts in Joplin, Missouri. The driver competed in almost every form of karting around the country before the late-model stock cars.

He returned to the karting ranks in 2007 and, to this day, competes in World Karting Association races on many of his open weekends.

Through his problematic 2009 and his contrasting 2010, McMurray discovered the power of prayer.

Following his win at Charlotte in 2010, McMurray said in his post-race interview, “As those laps were winding down, I was thinking about Daytona and why I cry and the power of prayer. I had a tough year last year. I found out about the power of prayer and what that can do for you. When you get to victory lane and you get to experience this, it just makes you a believer.”

Since 2017, the race driver has also been active in running and cycling with the other drivers.

On May 5, 2017, he completed the Assault on Mt. Mitchell and also completed his first marathon at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon later on December 12.
