RaceTrac has opened a new travel center in Kentucky. The 8,100-square-foot Shepherdsville store is the convenience-store chain’s first travel center in the state to have a drive-thru.

Customers can pull through a fast-food style drive-thru to order from RaceTrac’s full assortment of in-store items—from a slice of pizza to a cup of Swirl World frozen yogurt to a pack of batteries—or choose from a menu of RaceTrac’s most popular items.  

  • RaceTrac is No. 15 on CSP’s 2023 Top 202 ranking of convenience store chains by store count.

Other amenities of the store include a large outdoor patio, front-canopy fueling stations, a well-lit parking lot, free wifie and a large seating area. It also has an extended canopy with additional lanes for high-flow diesel with bulk diesel exhaust fluid for professional drivers.

Inside, the store has a wide selection of on-the-go food and beverage favorites, including six blends of freshly ground, freshly brewed “Crazy Good Coffee,” and a variety of hot food items, according to the company.

“Shepherdsville marks the third travel center and fourth location in Kentucky so far,” said Justen Giambalvo, vice president of construction, engineering and special projects at RaceTrac. “Just like Elizabethtown, Louisville and Frankfort, we expect to see large growth potential and robust traffic with the new store. As we expand our locations in the state of Kentucky, we hope to meet the demand for clean and convenient facilities for truck drivers, commuters and tourists alike as they fuel up and get whatever they need to get them going.”

The store is located off Interstate 65, near several major distribution centers.

RaceTrac, Atlanta, has more than 570 locations in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and Tennessee. Natalie Morhous, president of RaceTrac, is CSP’s 2023 Retail Leader of the Year.
