ROUSH RACING MAKES RETURN TO DAYTONA IN ROLEX 24

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Roush Racing, which won the top GT class in IMSA's season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona for nine straight years -- from 1985 to '93 -- will return for the '95 event on Feb. 4-5 with a Ford Mustang Cobra similar to the car that won in Roush's last appearance at the race.

The driving lineup for the team will include 1993 IMSA GTS driving champion Tommy Kendall; Roush's NASCAR Winston Cup Series driver, Mark Martin, who has driven on two Rolex 24 class-winning teams; actor Paul Newman, who last raced at Daytona in 1979; and racer/journalist Mike Brockman.

In addition, Roush will field a "customer car" for a team of Central American drivers. Roush used a variety of Ford Motor Co. products to win nine straight editions of the Rolex 24, either with his own cars or in a support role.

Practice for the 33rd Rolex 24 begins on Thursday, Feb. 2. Front row qualifying will be on Thursday afternoon, night practice on Thursday night and final practice and qualifying all day Friday. The race will begin at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4.
