Story By: MAYHEW TOOLS / TURNERS FALLS, MA – Mayhew Steel Products, Inc. (Mayhew Tools) announces sponsorship of NASCAR’s Whelen Modified Tour’s Pole Award for the 2021 season, which begins on Saturday, April 8th at Martinsville Speedway, Virginia.
This will be Mayhew’s third year in a row sponsoring the Pole Award which recognizes the qualifying round’s winning driver and crew chief, bringing the spotlight to the crew behind the driver’s success.
This sponsorship awards the winning driver a one-thousand-dollar check and the crew chief of the winning driver a Mayhew Dominator® heavy-duty curved pry bar, dubbed ‘The Big Stick’ at 13 lbs. and 54”, that allows for the ability to deliver tremendous force.
This year is the 37th season of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and Mayhew’s fifth consecutive year sponsoring the Whelen Modified Tour six-time champion driver, Doug Coby, now in his second year racing as owner and driver of the Doug Coby Racing team. Overall, this will be Mayhew’s sixth season as a sponsor in the racing arena as part of a larger marketing strategy to elevate their brand awareness within the racing community-at-large. Sponsoring the Pole Award and bestowing the winning crew chief with a prized Mayhew tool quite literally allows Mayhew Tools to get their premium tools into the hands of those who use them daily.
“We are excited and proud to be in a position to once again sponsor the Pole Award in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour series,” commented John Lawless, President, Mayhew Tools. “This sponsorship allows us the opportunity, to quite literally, be in the hands of the best in the trade and with our recent acquisition of Bestway Tools, we also have the opportunity to expand upon the premium hand tools we are able to offer to the racing community at-large.”
