WESTLAKE, Ohio -- August 12, 2013

TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), operator of the TA® and Petro
Stopping Centers® travel center brands, has announced the opening of a newly
built TA Truck Service facility located at I-40, Exit 70 in Mocksville, NC.
The Mocksville location offers three service bays, and is open 24/7/365. This
addition of this location takes the total number of truck service facilities
in the TA and Petro branded chains to 236.

Highly trained ASE- and TIA-certified technicians are on staff at this
location and throughout the TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube network. The TA
and Petro Service Network specializes in providing light duty repair, brakes,
electrical, alignment, air conditioning, preventive maintenance, inspections
and RoadSquad™ emergency road call services. All TA Truck Service and
Petro:Lube service centers now carry full lines of tires from Bridgestone,
Michelin, Goodyear and Continental.

“We continue to add truck service facilities at our locations in order to
provide a more complete full-service offering across our network,” shared Tom
O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters. “This also allows us to have more
RoadSquad emergency roadside service trucks staffed and available for our
customers to help keep them rolling,” he added.

The Mocksville truck service facility will soon begin offering Freightliner
ServicePoint, an authorized express service and light-duty repair program
available exclusively at TA and Petro truck service centers in cooperation
with Daimler Trucks North America. Freightliner ServicePoint is a key referral
point for Freightliner emergency and roadside repairs.

The new truck service facility has been built to include generator power in
case of an electrical outage. Additionally, to enhance the comfort of
professional drivers waiting for maintenance work to be performed, an outdoor
patio and seating area has been designed for customers to enjoy. A large,
indoor waiting area with a TV is also available.

The TA-Petro annual independent survey of Overdrive magazine readers in late
2012 showed that TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube were “Voted Best” by
professional drivers in eight categories, including Best Maintenance Shops,
4:1; Most Competent Technicians, 7:1; Most Trusted to Perform, 10:1; and Most
Complete Shops, 8:1. These ratios depict driver preference for TA and Petro
versus the next closest over-the-road repair and maintenance facilities,
including truck stops. TA and Petro were voted Best Overall Truck Stops,
preferred 4:1 over the competition.
