Woody Pitkat is a three time champion at the Stafford Motor Speedway. Mayhew Tools announced it will be sponsoring his Modified Racing series, Tri-Track series and The Modified Touring series efforts.
“I am so excited with the addition of Mayhew Tools to our 2017 racing schedule. It’s awesome to see what they have done with Doug Coby on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour this year and what they did with Bob Garbarino and Jimmy Blewett last season,” Woody said. “I am thrilled to see what they are doing with the modified cars whether it be the modified tour or one of the other modified series, they must figure that it is their best interest to be a part of modified racing and we are happy that they have chosen us to be a part of this season.”
Dan Stebbins, car owner of the #52 modified is equally thrilled with the sponsorship and what it means. “We are definitely thrilled with our affiliation with Mayhew Tools. They are a local company and have had been a big name in Western Massachusetts for a long time. Anytime you have a local company with a national name step up, it’s a big deal.”
Stebbins says they plan on running all of the Tri-Track series races, 5-6 of the Modified Racing series and 8-10 of the Modified Touring series races.
For Mayhew Tools president John Lawless, he too, is equally excited about the fit. “This is a natural extension for us. Our brand name is well known in the automotive industry. We want to expand and reinforce our reputation in the market place and we believe this will help us. We are a Made in America Company and can’t wait to see Woody in action. To be part of not only the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour but to now be able to be in the other modified series, we feel that we have all of those fans covered.”
Pitkat is of the belief that if they have been around since 1856, they must know what they are doing. “You look at how many companies come and go, but there is Mayhew Tools, still producing high quality tools after all these years, it says a lot about them and the high standards they have. I just hope that we are able to produce the results that will get them the best exposure possible,” Woody said.
As the 2017 season kicks off, Mayhew Tools will be found regardless of the modified series and the company hopes to see Woody Pitkat in Victory lane many times during the season.
