ATLANTA -- RaceTrac Petroleum and Fifth Third Bank have completed the installation of 228 ATMs--74 in Georgia and 154 in Florida--in RaceTrac convenience stores in the two states. Last year, the retailer selected Fifth Third Bank as the exclusive provider of ATM services for RaceTrac in Georgia and Florida.

"After several months of hard work behind the scenes, we're ready to deliver the convenience of our ATMs to RaceTrac guests throughout the region," said Randy Koporc, president of Fifth Third Bank Georgia.

Building on the relationship first announced in Oct. 2013, RaceTrac remains Fifth Third Bank's largest ATM association with a c-store.

"This is a natural collaboration because we both have a strong presence in Georgia and Florida and are committed to growth in these key areas," said Karen Dee, regional president of Florida and Mid-South for Fifth Third Bank.

"RaceTrac is glad to work with Fifth Third Bank as we introduce new, upgraded ATM machines in our Georgia and Florida stores," said Allison Moran, CEO of RaceTrac. "Fifth Third's expanded network and ease-of-use will aid RaceTrac in our mission of making people's lives simpler and more enjoyable."
