About Shamrock Auto Care

I'm Chris Murray, owner of Shamrock Auto Care. My life's work has been in the automotive industry. Prior to forming Shamrock, I spent over 20 years as an engine builder for NASCAR race teams including Richard Childress, Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt, helping to win over 23 races, including 4 Daytona 500’s.

I understand the importance of teamwork and what it takes to cross the finish line. Along with Team Shamrock's knowledge and expertise, we hope to please you with the service & performance you deserve. We look forward to meeting you!
