Miccosukee Resorts & Gaming will no longer sponsor Phoenix Racing’s No. 09. Miccosukee committed to sponsor the Phoenix Racing’s No. 1 Nationwide entry for the entire season, and the No. 09 Sprint Cup entry for 18 races. Chairman of the Miccosukee tribe, Billy Cypress, lost the his bid for reelection. The new chairman ended the sponsorship. Phoenix has very little recourse, despite having a contract. Owner James Finch could appeal to the tribual council, but that isn’t likely to make any difference.
