Only if the support truck is a RACE truck. And NO, they can't "contact" them, they can only hope to be ahead of their "support" and be SEEN when that support comes by. I'm describing the rules, not what may actually be happening.
Last year Robby Gordon dropped out of the race because he had a mechanical problem and could not call his other Hummer to come with parts.
