TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), operator of the TA® and Petro
Stopping Centers® travel center brands, has announced the acquisition and
rebranding of a travel center in Wells, Nevada, to the Petro Stopping Centers
brand. Petro Wells is located at I-80, exit 352A (1440 NE 6th St.). The
opening of this location raises the number of travel centers in the TA and
Petro Stopping Centers branded chain to 245.

Amenities at the new Petro now include:

  *300 truck parking spaces on a spacious, well-lit parking lot;
  *6 diesel lanes;
  *Fully stocked travel store;
  *5 showers;
  *Full-service restaurant;
  *Emergency roadside service, available 24/7/365; and

This location also offers a variety of other full-service professional driver
amenities, including Wi-Fi and ATM, check cashing and TripPak services. A CB
shop and casino are also offered. Gasoline is offered at six fueling lanes.

“We are very pleased to have acquired this location and open it as another
Petro,” said Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters. “We will soon be
adding a newly built Petro:Lube truck service facility and investing to
transform the restaurant to the fabulous Iron Skillet® brand in order to bring
a more complete full-service offering to professional drivers,” he added.

Petro Wells is located approximately half way between TA Mill City, Nevada and
TA Salt Lake City on I-80, providing drivers a convenient stop and fueling
location in northeast Nevada.

TA and Petro conducted the annual independent survey of Overdrive magazine
readers in late 2012. The results showed that drivers prefer Petro and TA over
the next closest truck stop brand 4:1 for the best overall truckstop category.
Petro and TA dominated the survey in 33 other categories, including largest
parking lots 5:1; best overall food 6:1; most comprehensive driver services
3:1; cleanest showers and restrooms 3:1; best fitness facilities 6:1; best
overall truck repair 4:1; and most competent technicians 7:1. These ratios
depict driver preference for TA and Petro versus the next closest truck stop
