DIRT DEVIL TO WITHDRAW FROM WINSTON CUP RACE PROGRAM AFTER 1993

 WATKINS GLEN, N.Y., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- John Balch, president of Royal Appliance Mfg. Co. (NYSE: RAM), manufacturer of Dirt Devil vacuums and Felix Sabates, owner of Sabco Racing, announced today that they have mutually agreed to end the company's sponsorship of the Dirt Devil/Sabco Racing team at the conclusion of the 1993 season. The original contract was to run through the 1995 season.
 Royal has experienced operating losses in the first two quarters of 1993 and is reviewing all of its expenses.
 "It has been a hard decision for the company to make. We are proud to be associated with Kenny Wallace and Sabco racing. This decision is most definitely not a reflection on this team or its performance," stated Balch. "We pledge our continued support for the Dirt Devil Team and will honor our commitment for the balance of the current season. We look forward to the day in which we can return to Winston Cup racing and when we do, it most certainly will be with Felix, Kenny and Sabco Racing."
 Royal Appliance Mfg. Co. develops, assembles and markets a full line of vacuum cleaners for home and commercial use under the Dirt Devil(R) and Royal(R) brand names. The company's executive offices are located at 650 Alpha Drive, Cleveland, Ohio 44143.
