J. R. Patton (born September 12, 1983 in Las Cruces, New Mexico) is a current part-time Craftsman Truck Series driver. He drives the #63 MB Motorsports Ford. Patton is currently a senior at New Mexico State University, where he is majoring in business marketing. He has run in the Buck Baker Driving School. He is the only known Native American driver to compete in NASCAR.
Patton made seven starts late in 2004 for Fiddleback Racing. In his debut, Patton ran a second Fiddleback truck (#66) to a fifteenth place finish at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Patton drove for the rest of 2004, but the 15th at Vegas would prove to be Patton's best. He also finished all but one of his starts.
In 2006, MB Motorsports announced Patton would take over its #63 Ford entry for a limited schedule. Despite five attempts, Patton missed every race he tried to make.
