Sequins and Sawdust, Exclusively at RaceTrac
ATLANTA – December 28, 2015 – Far away and off the beaten path the tents go up, the sawdust goes down, and the lights flicker to life. Something mysterious has awakened in the twilight. Sequins flash as artists find their places, and curious eyes peer out from the darkness in awe and amazement. Here, under the big tent, the line between possible and impossible vanishes. This is a place where magic comes to life!
Feeling intrigued? We certainly are. RaceTrac is excited to offer an exclusive experience for our wine-drinking TracFanatics with Sequins & Sawdust, a 1930’s carnival-inspired collection currently available in Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. And with Sequins & Sawdust, luxury doesn’t have to break the bank.
The Chardonnay will entertain you with aromas of golden delicious apple, kiwi and a hint of sweet cream butter. Flavors of pineapple and papaya will come next, followed by hints of vanilla, caramel and lemon in the finish. Enjoy this wine for up to five years from the date of purchase, perfectly paired with pork chops and applesauce, chicken piccata or clam chowder.
Meanwhile, the Cabernet Sauvignon will invite you in with aromas of cedar, cloves, cranberries and hints of vanilla and anise. Once it hits the palate, flavors of dark cherry and blackberry abound with a well-balanced body. Enjoy this wine for up to 10 years from the date of purchase, perfectly paired with prime rib, roasted root vegetables or a rack of lamb.
So pour a glass and toast to you, TracFanatic – you’re worth it!

RaceTrac Store Support Center Move
ATLANTA – (December 3, 2015) – RaceTrac’s Store Support Center (SSC) is moving to a new home! Last month, RaceTrac signed a lease to move its current SSC, located at 3225 Cumberland Boulevard in Atlanta, to the nearby Cumberland Galleria at 200 Galleria Parkway in the late fall of 2016!
RaceTrac’s decision to move was influenced by a number of factors. The amount of team members at RaceTrac’s SSC has increased by approximately five percent each year, resulting in more than 600 team members who now work in its Atlanta office. This recent growth, in conjunction with the expiration of RaceTrac’s current lease, led the company to seek more space in a new office environment.
“RaceTrac’s Store Support Center provides support for our store teams as they work to make people’s lives simpler and more enjoyable,” said RaceTrac CEO Allison Moran. “As we’ve increased the number of stores across our regions, it has impacted the amount of support needed at our SSC. The time has come for us to move to accommodate this growth so we can reach new heights in supporting the people in our stores and the guests they serve, while exploring even higher levels of growth and innovation. We look forward to making this transition and to the bright future that lies ahead.”
RaceTrac will initially occupy approximately 114,000 square feet spanning five floors – 6, 7, 8, 10 and 12 – with the opportunity to expand to additional floors of the 20-story high-rise building. This significant increase in square footage compared to the current SSC will provide room for the company’s continued growth as RaceTrac is set to occupy the space until 2032.
In anticipation of this decision, RaceTrac created a Workplace Strategy Team that conducted a comprehensive study of workspace needs using team member feedback. These findings were key to determining that 200 Cumberland Galleria is the ideal new workplace for RaceTrac, offering the space needed for the growing company, an opportunity for customization, a simple transition between locations and minimal impact on team members’ current commutes.
RaceTrac’s new office space will reflect the brand’s “Live for Fun” identity and culture while team members benefit from unique office amenities, including access to outdoor space via the Galleria Gardens, special tenant events and an athletic facility.

In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, RaceTrac may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries.

RaceTrac keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within RaceTrac, in order to determine what RaceTrac services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within RaceTrac to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
RaceTrac Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on RaceTrac or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of RaceTrac; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of RaceTrac, or the public.
The RaceTrac Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize RaceTrac pages, or register with RaceTrac site or services, a cookie helps RaceTrac to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same RaceTrac Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the RaceTrac features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the RaceTrac services or Web sites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
RaceTrac secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. RaceTrac secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement
RaceTrac will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. RaceTrac encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how RaceTrac is protecting your information.
