Speedway LLC is a line of gasoline and convenience stores based in Enon, Ohio. Founded in the first part of the 20th century as Speedway 79, the majority of its locations were based in Michigan until the stores were acquired by Marathon Petroleum Corporation in 1959. At this point, they changed the name of many of their locations to Speedway. In 1997, Marathon and Ashland Petroleum formed Marathon Ashland Petroleum LLC (MAP). This joint venture combined both companies' refining and marketing into one business, forming the Speedway company we know today.

Today, more than two million people make purchases at a Speedway store every day.
