RaceTrac's Daytona Beach Plans Are a Go


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- RaceTrac Petroleum Inc. is pushing forward with plans to build two new locations here.

At the end of September, the Atlanta-based retailer put the finishing touches on a $1.6-million deal for a 1.8-acre parcel of land at the corner of U.S. 1 and Beville Road, according to Volusia County property records. The seller was Fifth Third Bank, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported.

RaceTrac's plans call for a 6,000-square-foot convenience store and gas station to rise on the property, said Rich Walton, the city's planning director.

In addition, the city gave RaceTrac the go-ahead to build a 6,000-square-foot convenience store/gas station at the southeast corner of LPGA and Williamson boulevards in Daytona Beach, Walton told the newspaper. That 3.4-acre parcel is owned by Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co. and is part of a 25-acre, multi-parcel development.

RaceTrac operates more than 360 convenience stores in Georgia, Florida, Louisiana and Texas.

As CSNews Online previously reported, RaceTrac is not the only c-store chain interested in making a presence in the Daytona area. In May, Pennsylvania-based Wawa was said to be eyeing a property at 1031 Dunlawton Ave., which would be its first in the Volusia-Flagler County region.
