In celebrating the contributions of professional tradesmen, IRWIN will give away $1 million to one lucky person if McMurray captures his first win under the lights in the 2011 IRWIN Tools Night Race as part of the IRWIN Tools Thank a Tradesman Sweepstakes.
"It puts a lot of extra pressure on me for sure," says McMurray, driver of the No. 1 Bass Pro Shops/McDonalds Chevrolet. "I would love to make someone a millionaire at Bristol. What a great promotion to recognize our country's tradesmen who are unsung heroes in our everyday life."

"IRWIN is proud to honor them, and we think the IRWIN Tools Night Race is the place to do it. The winner will have a race experience of a lifetime, plus we hope to give away $1 million."
