TMC Transportation, the largest privately-held open-freight transportation company in the United States, has returned to the racing world as the presenting sponsor with a motorsports driver development program called Rising Star. The program, Rising Star Driver Development, offers a one-stop, comprehensive training and marketing resource for young, talented drivers.
Michael Annett, a Rising Star driver, will field the TMC black and gold No. 12 Ford Fusion in the 2006 ASA North season. Annett is one of three drivers in the Rising Star program for 2006. In 2007, one lucky driver will receive a full scholarship to enroll in the RSDD program, courtesy of TMC.
