This article focuses on the newly opened convenience store Ocala Pit Stop in Florida. Construction of the store started on the 5,000-square-foot facility in December 2004, which includes a convenience store, fast-food court area with seating for more than 20 people and a car wash. The location offers 17 fueling positions with a large variety of fuel products including the three grades of fuel--87, 89 and 93 octane--as well as off-road diesel or farm fuel, on-road diesel and two grades of racing fuel. To emphasize the theme of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR), carried throughout the property, five NASCAR cars sit on top of the canopy, above the fueling stations.
