My son is doing his 3rd grade Native American report on the Miccosukee Tribe. Can anybody tell me how many wins they have in NASCAR?

Kyle Busch @ Texas
Kyle Busch @ Fontana
Brad Keselowski @ Talladega

Am I missing any? Also, how many years did they sponsor Kyle Busch?

I'm also gathering pictures and hero cards to include in his report. We have Brad's hero card and a few pictures I pulled off the internet.

Thanks for your help! =)

Mike Bliss won at Charlotte in 2009 with Miccosukee as the sponsor in the Nationwide Series, I think that was the year and race.

Brad Keselowski - 1
Kyle Busch - 4?
Mike Bliss - 1

I think Johnny Sauter may have won a race for them In Nationwide too?

[MENTION=1296]Newbie[/MENTION] the Sponsorship has dated back to 2002 with Geoff Bodine and Jame Finch they finished 3rd to Ward Burton And Elliott Sadler that year. In 2003 they started sponsoring the Busch Series Jame Finch entry with Jamie McMurray and David Stremme driving the car and Stremme would go on to win Rookie of the year honors. While McMurray won at Rockingham. I believe he had the Sponsorship on both of his cars at least for some races until 2010. The first time Kyle had sponsorship from them was with Billy Ballew in 2006 at Homestead (#51), where they also sponsored Mike Wallace (@ Homestead as well #15). A side from NASCAR sponsorship they have also sponsored the Florida(Miami) Marlins since 2003 having their logos in the stadium.

Miccosukee is one of my all time favorite NASCAR sponsors. I love the scheme of every car they ever sponsored.

Wow! First of all I didn't realize Miccosukee sponsored so many different drivers and I had no idea Kyle Busch had so many wins with them. Sucks that they left the sport. I've decided not to mention the exact number of wins they have in NASCAR, I'm just mentioning the different drivers and including as many pictures as I can find.

Thanks for the help everybody!

They actually started in the 2000 season with Chip MacPherson and Miccosukee was on Geoff Bodine's car at the 2001 Pennzoil Freedom 400 at Homestead. Brett Bodine (his brother) owned the #09 car (This was my first race)

Also in the 2000 Pennzoil Freedom 400 at Homestead Chip MacPherson #98 Miccosukee


Hope this helps @Newbie

They seemed to sponsor a lot of teams who ran Florida races. Here's Martin Truex Jr. with his father's team at Homestead 2002.
