Jamie McMurray's first full day at Daytona International Speedway included a photo opportunity of the driver standing amid the track's famed trophies.

On his wrist was the Rolex he'd won two weeks earlier in the prestigious 24-hour sports car race.

McMurray has just seven career Sprint Cup wins on his resume. But he certainly knows how to pick the right time to win.

So much so that team owner Chip Ganassi deemed him "a big game hunter."

With last month's Rolex victory, McMurray joined Mario Andretti and A.J. Foyt as the only three drivers to win both the Daytona 500 and the sports car race.
