 WINN-DIXIE WILL SPONSOR ROUSH RACING/MARK MARTIN IN 1992
 JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/-- Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., will be the primary sponsor of the Roush Racing/Mark Martin Racing Ford Thunderbird in the NASCAR Busch Grand National series during the 1992 season, Winn-Dixie Director of Advertising Mickey Clerc, Jack Roush and driver Mark Martin announced today.
 Mark Martin will be the driver, competing in a limited schedule of a minimum of fourteen (14) races in the No. 60 car entered in the name of Mark Martin Racing. Terms of the agreement were not released.
 "Winn-Dixie is excited to be involved with Jack Roush and Mark Martin in what we know will be a successful program in the Busch Grand National series. The majority of our stores are located in the heartland of NASCAR in the Southeast. Our customers and associates are NASCAR fans and we wanted to do something special with NASCAR for them," said Clerc.
 "NASCAR racing is an All-American sport with All-American cars. Winn-Dixie is America's Supermarket. Our driver, Mark Martin, certainly typifies the All-American image important to our stores."
 Said Roush: "We're pleased to join forces with Winn-Dixie as we begin our commitment to the Busch Grand National series. I look forward to the challenges presented by this series and I'm confident that with Team Winn-Dixie and Mark, we can enjoy the same kind of successes we've had in Winston Cup."
 "It's really going to be a challenge campaigning a car as well as assuming the driving duties in the Busch series. I really missed driving in the Busch Grand National series during the 1991 season after so many years. I can't wait to get back," said Martin.
 Winn-Dixie, with stores in 13 Southeastern and Southwestern states, is the largest food retailer in the Sunbelt. The company operates more than 1,200 supermarkets and employs 106,000 associates. Corporate headquarters is located in Jacksonville, Fla.
