EnviroSpark and RaceTrac, both based in Atlanta, are partnering to bring EV charging to the convenience retailer for the first time. The first station will be in Oxford, Alabama, and will feature DC fast charging.

According to a press release from EnviroSpark, Max McBrayer, CEO at RaceTrac said, “As a fuel provider—no matter the type—RaceTrac will meet the evolving needs of its guests and America’s motorists by providing EV drivers with access to a robust and reliable refueling network for years to come.”

The charging station will include two fast-charge, 180-kilowatt ports—compatible with all EVs—which will allow drivers to fully charge in 15 to 20 minutes. The companies are planning additional charging sites in the future.

According to RaceTrac, “While the Oxford charging station marks a significant milestone for RaceTrac, it’s only the beginning of the business’ journey into the EV market. Over the coming months and years, RaceTrac will continue to expand its EV charging network, underscoring the commitment to meet guest needs and deliver on the promise of making people’s lives simpler and more enjoyable.”

EnviroSpark founder and CEO Aaron Luque said, “A truly sustainable future requires collaboration, and we are honored to partner with fellow Atlanta-based company, RaceTrac, to give American drivers choices in how they fuel their vehicles when they’re on the road. Alongside forward-looking leaders like RaceTrac, EnviroSpark is committed to building the transportation and travel infrastructure of tomorrow.”

Responsible for the installation of more than 7,400 charging ports for a wide variety of commercial properties nationwide, EnviroSpark began working with fueling stations and convenience stores in 2018. Since then, the company has installed 72 DC Fast Chargers at c-stores across eight states.
