CONCORD, N.C. — While TMC Transportation announced its sponsorship of JR Motorsports and driver Michael Annett on Thursday, it’s certainly not the first time the company has been involved in motorsports.
TMC, which is owned and operated by Annett’s father, Harrold Annett, was a longtime sponsor of Hall of Fame sprint car driver Sammy Swindell during the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Harrold Annett owned the No. 1 sprint cars Swindell drove for several seasons and also sponsored Swindell in limited ventures into the NASCAR XFINITY Series.
The No. 1 TMC sprint car was a familiar site at dirt tracks from coast to coast.
