Speedway Application & Careers

Speedway ApplicationSpeedway LLC owns gas stations and convenience stores across the Midwest and east coast of the US. On its east coast stores, it can be known under its Hess or WilcoHess brands. It was founded in 1959. This company’s first name was Speedway 79, before being bought in 1959 by the Ohio Oil Company (who would later change their company’s name into Marathon).  Once state governments legalized self-service gasoline stations, Marathon renamed their gasoline stations into Speedway.

During Marathon’s expansion, they acquired 10 different brands and rebranded them all as Speedway. Then in 1997 Marathon merged with Ashland Petroleum. As a result, Ashland’s SuperAmerica merged with Speedway, further expanding the chain. Then in 2011, Marathon separated its upstream and downstream operations. Pilot corporations soon merged with Speedway, who soon bought out Marathon’s interests. Once this company merged with Hess Corporation in 2014, they renamed locations into either Pilot Flying J or Speedway.

Today, Tony Kenney serves as this company’s president. It owns 2,822 locations and remains a subsidiary to Marathon Petroleum Company. Its Headquarters is in Enon, Ohio, United States. In 2014, Company President Toney Kenney, announced that they would be adding alternative fuels as options into their gas stops’ line up. This includes E85 Ethanol and Compressed Natural Gas. There are currently 221 stores that have E85 available.
