Interior view of a SuperAmerica convenience store on Winchester Road in Lexington Feb. 10, 1987. Some of the items for sale above the counter include film and flashes for cameras. To the right is a display of candy bars that include Hersey bars, M&M's and Snickers just to name a few. On the bottom and right side of the counter are such magazines as People, TV Guide and Sports Illustrated, which features Kentucky-native Phil Simms on the cover after his win in Super Bowl 21. In 1997 after the merger of Marathon and Ashland Petroleum, many SuperAmerica stores across the nation were renamed Speedway. In 2011 Marathon sold its SuperAmerica stores. Today Speedway and SuperAmerica are unrelated chains. Most of the SuperAmerica's are located in the midwest. Photo by Steven R. Nickerson | staff
