About Us

Our History

Indy Auto Racing is the online division of Indy Auto Parts – a speed shop founded by two friends and car experts in Peabody, Mass. With over three decades of experience, the Indy Boys are known locally for helping customers when other stores don't have the answers. As a result, Indy Auto Parts has grown into one of the largest retailers of truck, speed, and race products in the Greater Boston area. Our store has been a reliable track sponsor of New England Dragway since 1991 and supports local car clubs like the Orientals Car Club and Mass Street Rodders Car Club.

Our Team

Chip Mitchell started off as a USMC trained diesel and automotive mechanic. During college, he took a store manager position at ADAP and had the idea to create a new shop that specializes in racing and truck accessories. In his spare time, Chip loves to go bracket racing and compete in his dragster, which can be seen here

Dave Collings began his career at ADAP with Chip and managed the Somerville location. After finishing school, the two joined together to create the store now known as Indy Auto Parts. Dave has great experience with automotive hard parts and aftermarket accessories; his customer service is famous among local customers.
