About Us

Ray started his business in 1968 on the corner of 25th and Beam Road. By 1978 he had expanded the business to three locations.  Back then, service stations actually pumped the gas for you, washed your windows and checked your oil and tires. Personalized customer service is what Ray made his business all about.

Stuart joined his father in 1976 working on the drive at the Marathon Stations. He is a graduate of the Automotive Management Institute and Toyota’s Quality Executive Management program.  Stuart has over 30 years of automotive experience and has been Master Certified by both Toyota and Lexus.  Stuart is the President of Ray’s Automotive Center and looks forward to assisting you with the most convenient and cost effective automotive service.

Connie (Stuart’s wife) joined the family in 1987 and is the Office Manager.   Anne (Stuart’s Daughter) is our third generation at Ray’s. Anne is currently studying business at Indiana University and works at Ray’s during her breaks.
