In February 2018, RaceTrac revealed plans to open 30 or more convenience stores in the Nashville area by 2023, marking the chain’s first expansion into a new market in more than 15 years, the retailer said. Construction of the first RaceTrac c-store in Nashville is on track for completion by early 2020, the company said, with additional stores in the permitting phase of development in the Nashville metropolitan area.

Nine months after the Nashville expansion announcement, the chain opened its 500th convenience store in Hapeville, Ga. RaceTrac also opened three additional stores that same week in Lafayette, La.; Fellsmere, Fla.; and Brunswick, Ga.
