Geoff Bodine Motorsports was a professional NASCAR Winston Cup/Nextel Cup Series team that once fielded Geoff Bodine's #70 car, which it did starting in 1994 after the team was founded with funding and support from AK Racing, and also fielded Geoff's brothers Todd and Brett Bodine in the 2000/2001 seasons, driving the #97 and #46 cars respectively. Geoff Bodine, and by extension the team itself, raced the outdated Ford Thunderbird after it's official retirement and until the first half of the 1999 season, after which NASCAR banned Geoff's last remaining Thunderbird backup car from racing in the 1999 season, forcing him to switch to the new Taurus model. After Geoff's retirement in 2003, he couldn't find anyone who would replace him, and thereafter he sold the fledgling team, which was bought by and and merged into Roush Racing, although the #70 car was only ran part time in 2004 by Roush Racing. Geoff Bodine Motorsports only had 7 wins throughout its 9 year span in NASCAR.
