RaceTrac Petroleum’s history began in 1934 as Carl Bolch Trackside Stations in Missouri. Carl’s son, Carl Bolch Jr., succeeded as the chief executive in 1967 and pioneered the concept of self-service gasoline in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. In 1979, it was determined that company-operated stores would utilize the RaceTrac name, while contractor-operated stores would use the RaceWay brand. The chain has since spread operations to in Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
The 2000s witnessed expansion in foodservice as RaceTrac introduced a variety of fresh sandwiches, wraps, salads, and more. Today, the company is known for its large-format convenience stores with innovations such as Swirl World frozen yogurt, ample seating, bean-to-cup coffee, and more.
RaceTrac was Convenience Store Decisions’ 2014 Chain of the Year.
