    Hey, what about me...... 2011 was so hot and the fury had vapor lock so bad, The guys could not do anything for me, so I was forced to go home from Valdosta....

    Thanks for all the replies, last year was our first year, and we lost the brake booster in Hot Springs. The replacement part, which Midas charged us 3 times the cost of, was from Little Rock. So I thought I'd ask questions about the Medics ahead of time.

    They do close up at 6 each evening and you have to furnish the parts. They work on worst cases first and you are put on a list. I've been told that fewer and fewer cars have needed repairs the last few years. A great bunch of guys!

    That was the way that I understood it too. I had the Malibu in there at Indy, 2011. The young guys working it at that time spent most of the time in shock that I was running points & didn't have any pretty plug wire looms. I ended up fixing the problems (there were 2) myself the next day. They were however working very hard in some very hot weather.

    NAPA was on board for several years, had a booth at the venue. Any parts that were not available locally, they would try to have them over night. I would guess the Medics closed when the Venue did. I have also seen the Medics stop during the trip when a large group was gathered and ask if anyone needed help. You have to supply your own parts.

    Also you only pay for the parts not for labor, a great deal.
    Do you have to locate your own parts? Or do they have avenues at each stop to help with rounding up parts. Also do they close at 6?

    They travel along with the rest of us. At the venue, they have a shop set up and will help with any problems you may have. They can handle about any problem to keep you on the road.
