For race fans traveling back and forth down I-35 this summer, we have the perfect place for you to stop in between your north and south destinations.

Located just off of I-35 in Bethany, Mo., there is a Casey’s General Store that has something for everyone whether you’re a pack of rabid race fans in a mini-van or a weary crew inside a toter home pulling a double-stacker trailer.

“The Casey’s store in Bethany is our favorite place to stop when we’re on the road,” said USMTS President Todd Staley. “We pretty much plan our course with this location as a mandatory stop. It’s got everything we need or want.”

Located at 4107 Miller St., this Casey’s General Store is open 24 hours. In addition to pizza and bakery this store also offers made-to-order subs and has an extended fountain selection. They have five diesel pumps for large trucks/semis as well as four diesel pumps for smaller pickups, all with easy access.

And if you need to wash away the racetrack from your face after a race, they offer very nice showers too.

From I-35, take exit 92 for US-136 toward Bethany/Princeton and then go about 2 blocks east on Miller St.

While you’re there, pick up a Large Supreme Pizza for only $13.99 and/or a Medium Supreme for $12.99 during the month of June.

Through the years, the success of Casey’s General Stores has been attributed to their clean stores, restrooms and the friendly employees who pride themselves in customer service. Casey’s customers have come to know that inside each store they will find dedicated, helpful and well-trained employees, exceptional prepared food items and a clean environment in which to shop.
