Sixth RaceWash under construction in southeast Ocala

The sixth RaceWash location is currently under construction near a major interchange in southeast Ocala.

Located near the intersection of County Road 484 and County Road 475A, a block away from Interstate 75, the new car wash is making brisk progress at the site.

When completed, the RaceWash will join five others across most of Ocala. That includes the fifth location, which was built on W Silver Springs Boulevard, near the highway’s intersection with I-75.

Before that, the fourth RaceWash was built along State Road 200, just a few miles from the site of the second RaceWash, which is near Fore Ranch. That location sits next door to the site of the new Chick-fil-A that just opened in Ocala.

Owned by Merritt Fore III and Mac Fore, RaceWash opened its first location along Maricamp Road before adding the three locations on SW College Road and the fifth in west Ocala.

RaceWash currently boasts the most car wash locations of any brand in Ocala, which has become a hub for the industry in recent years. There are currently two dozen “self service” car washes in Ocala, including several under construction. 

Tidal Wave Auto Spa is currently working on its second location at 7510 SW 95th Street. That location has been in various stages of planning and construction since 2021.
