EBT-Eligible Items at RaceTrac

You cannot use your EBT card to purchase gas, alcohol, cigarettes, or hot foods at RaceTrac. However, you can buy items like non-alcoholic drinks, baked goods, candy, bottled cold coffee, ice cream, and packaged foods. For more details of what you can and cannot buy using EBT, see our related article.

Other Payment Methods at RaceTrac

For items that your EBT card does not cover, you will need to have a second payment method on hand when making purchases at RaceTrac. You can use your EBT card first and then pay the difference using an alternative payment method. RaceTrac accepts cash, debit cards, RaceTrac gift cards, and all major credit cards (as previously reported).

Does RaceWay Take EBT?

RaceWay gas stations — which are owned by RaceTrac Petroleum Inc. but operate independently as franchises — also accept EBT at many locations.

We contacted RaceWay stations in Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Texas to confirm that they take EBT. About 85% of the RaceWay locations we checked said they accept EBT. We also checked the SNAP retailer locator in the states where RaceWay is located; RaceWay locations are SNAP-approved in each of these states.

Since EBT acceptance varies by location at the discretion of the franchisee and based on SNAP approval, you may want to contact your nearest RaceWay to confirm that it accepts EBT before visiting.
