On September 1, 2001, Marathon formed Pilot Travel Centers, LLC (PTC) in a joint venture with Pilot Corporation. Each company owns 50% of PTC.  

The Speedway SuperAmerica chain of convenience stores was a subsidiary of this now-defunct company. In addition, Marathon Ashland Petroleum owned seven refineries and a number of other pipelines.
