Quality Control Is Key

Every part sold by Raceway Auto & Truck Parts in Savannah, Tenn. has been through at least four pairs of hands, and eyes before it reaches the customer. Quality control is something our team takes very seriously. We set up a four-point checklist to make sure no part is delivered or shipped with unknown damage.

The check begins when the vehicle arrives. A complete walk-around is done and sheet metal damage is circled. The vehicle is checked a second time in dismantling. A third check occurs when a part is sold. Each parts puller has a quality control checklist. If additional damage is found, the puller goes into the Pinnacle Pro system and adds a damage resolution to the work order. The resolution immediately flags the salesperson’s work order and informs him or her about the damage. The part is checked a fourth time in the delivery holding area, before being loaded on the truck.

Raceway Auto & Truck Parts started in 1987 as Bobby’s Body Shop. Gary’s father, Bobby Coln, had a dream to own a used parts business and the body shop was his start.

Gary got his first ideas by attending Locator on Location conventions. That’s when he prompted his father to buy their first inventory system, Auto Info, and the parts business grew. By the early 1990s, the body shop was gone. Over the next 10 years, Bobby’s Body Shop switched inventory systems twice and acquired a second yard, Raceway Auto Parts in Lawrenceburg, Tenn. Raceway Auto Parts was built on an oval dirt racetrack. The Coln’s liked the name and changed Bobby’s Body Shop to Raceway Auto & Truck Parts to keep the businesses consistent. The renovated Lawrenceburg location was sold two years later to an interested party for a profit. It was then Gary and Bobby decided to solely focus on the original Savannah location.

Although Raceway Auto & Truck Parts is not involved in track racing, it has put together a demolition derby at the local fair for nearly 20 years.

In March 2023, Raceway Auto was acquired by Road Tested Parts.

    Jeff has been working with me and my car for over a month. He goes above and beyond to make sure you are completely happy. We purchased a warranty on a part and the company didn’t want to stand by it. Jeff did everything besides build me … More a transmission himself to make sure I got my replacement. And I did get it just like he promised. 10/10 will buy parts only from here forever. You have a lifer because of Jeff. Give him a raise, a partnership, and new car or something because he deserves the absolute world. And to you Jeff thank you so so much for all your hard work! You are a ROCKSTAR!

    Raceway has been a wonderful experience for my many purchases, large or small, and with selling vehicles, over the years. Everyone there has been great, but Eli by the front door has such a great attitude you cant help but give him credit … More for just being a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day! Even if he isnt your usual salesman, he is dfinitely a great person to have representing the company as soon as you walk in!
