RaceWay's roots go back over 75 years to 1934 when Carl Bolch, Sr. opened independent gas stations in St. Louis, Missouri, under the name Carl Bolch Trackside Stations. His strategy was to be independent of major oil companies thus be able to consistently offer lower-priced gasoline to the public. In 1959 he relocated and acquired the Oil Well Company of Opp, Alabama, which consisted of numerous independent stores located, for the most part, in rural areas of Alabama. These stores and the ones opened after them evolved into the early RaceWay concept: full-service stores opened in conjunction with small grocery stores.
In 1967, Carl Bolch, Jr. the current Chief Executive Officer, joined the company in Montgomery, Alabama. He expanded the company's geography throughout the South and into Texas on the newly constructed interstate system and pioneered the concept of self-service gasoline in Alabama, Florida and Georgia. Today the RaceWay brand has grown to almost 300 stores across 12 states in the Southeastern United States.
The company relocated to Atlanta, Georgia in 1976, and in 1979 adopted the brand "RaceTrac" for its company-operated stores. Contractor-operated stores, many of which were the original Oil Well Company stores, became branded RaceWay. Today Raceway has grown to almost 300 stores across 12 states in the Southeast with plans to open 20 additional stores in 2011.
