ANDERSON, Ind. — Anderson Speedway returns to racing action on Saturday with the Spring Championships for the MEP Late Models, Street Stocks, WMDH ThunderCars and Front Wheel Drive Figure 8s.

Tyler Marsh paces the Street Stock standings with a seven-point margin over Calvin Parham. Third is Joe Pulley with Danny Adams and opening night winner Jake McEflresh completing the top five.
