COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 26 - Michael Shank Racing Services announced today that Columbus Truck and Equipment, an authorized Mack truck dealer, will sponsor the team and drivers John Rutherford IV and Kenny Wilden in this year's KOOL Toyota Atlantic series.

"We're very pleased with our new relationship with Columbus Truck and Equipment," said Mike Shank, the team owner and a former Atlantic champion. "This is the first year of what we hope will be a long relationship with this company and Mack trucks, which plans to use the racing team as the cornerstone of its corporate hospitality program."

"We're excited to be going racing with Mike Shank, John Rutherford IV and Kenny Wilden," said Ray Mason, who owns Columbus Truck and Equipment. "This is an up-and-coming team with up-and-coming drivers, and we feel the team, the drivers and our company have a bright future together in professional motorsports."

As part of the new partnership, Columbus Truck and Equipment is supplying a Mack truck to the team to transport its cars and equipment to the series' 13 races this year, the Atlantic series' silver anniversary season. The truck will be a rolling billboard as it travels the highways of the United States and Canada for races as far away as Vancouver, B.C. and Trois-Rivieres, Que.

Representatives of other companies wishing to get involved may obtain more information by contacting Shank at (614) 299-3811. The team is located at 1386 Fields Ave., Columbus, Ohio 43211.
