Signs Of The Times…Super America Becomes Speedway


Marathon Petroleum acquired Super America and Super America stores throughout Minnesota are being re-branded as Speedway stores.  Most of our local stores have already made the transition.

Super America has been a familiar roadside retail oasis throughout Minnesota for decades.  Now, we just have to get used to the name change.

I find it very convenient to swing into my neighborhood SA (OOPS) Speedway on 210 West in Baxter.  You’ll find me there at least once a day either on the way to or on the way home from work. They’ve gotta great crew.  Angie is the boss and Elizabeth is usually at the till.  They’re good people and the pizza and the four-packs of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and the melt in your mouth Cheetos Puffs are good too. Hey, what can I say.  I’m usually in a hurry.
