WESTLAKE, Ohio -- TravelCenters of America LLC, operator of the TA and Petro Stopping Centers travel center brands, has announced the opening of a newly built Petro:Lube facility located at I-35, Exit 101, in Pearsall, Texas.

The truck service repair facility offers four service bays and is open to serve customers 24/7/365.

The TA and Petro Truck Service Network specializes in providing light-duty repair, brakes, electrical, alignment, air conditioning, preventive maintenance, inspections and RoadSquad emergency road call services. All TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube service centers now carry full lines of tires from Bridgestone, Michelin, Goodyear, Continental and Samson.

“We add truck service centers to our network to make it easier for drivers to find all the services they need in one place,” said Tom O’Brien, president and CEO of TravelCenters. “Drivers know they can count on highly skilled ASE and TIA certified technicians, a service center that offers the highest quality products in the industry and open 24/7/365 and our many amenities.”

These results are based on an independent TA and Petro survey of Overdrive magazine readers conducted in the fall of 2014. The ratios depict professional driver preference for TA and Petro versus the next closest truckstop brand.
