TURNERS FALLS, Mass. — Mayhew Steel Products, Inc. (Mayhew Tools) is excited to announce their 2024 season sponsorship of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Pole Award for the sixth consecutive year.

This award honors the driver and crew who achieves the fastest time in qualifying. Through this sponsorship, Mayhew Tools will reward each pole-winning driver with a $1,000 check and present the team’s crew chief with a newly released 14-piece Micro Hand Tool Set. This set consists of Mayhew’s most popular micro hand tools, including pry bars, hooks, picks and screwdrivers.
