Growth Energy and Prime the Pump Welcome RaceTrac to Growing Number of E15 Retailers

WASHINGTON — Today, Growth Energy announced that RaceTrac is joining a growing list of retailers as part of the Prime the Pump initiative. Growth Energy works in collaboration with Prime the Pump members to make higher biofuel blends, like E15, available to more Americans across the nation. RaceTrac joins the ranks of Sheetz, Kum & Go, MAPCO, Minnoco, Thorntons, Murphy USA, Protec, and several others as the newest retailer to offer consumers a cleaner burning, home-grown American fuel.

“We are thrilled to have RaceTrac join our retailer family and look forward to expanding access to E15 for consumers across the Southern United States with them,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “As a longtime supporter of alternative fuels, such as E85, RaceTrac is committed to providing its customers with a choice at their pumps. By adding E15, RaceTrac will bring even more renewable fuel options to consumers, providing greater choice and savings to motorists.

“We are proud to be a part of this effort, and are confident that consumers will choose E15 because it reduces harmful emissions, burns cooler and has increased octane levels which results in enhanced vehicle performance, while also saving drivers money.”

RaceTrac is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia and operates more than 600 company-owned and third-party contract operated stores under the RaceTrac and RaceWay names in 12 southern states.
