Anthony Anders and Marty Ward ran side by side, lap after lap, in the Late-Model Stock main event Saturday night at Greenville-Pickens Speedway before Anders got his nose out front and won the 40-lap main event to stretch his winning streak to three.
Overall, at three tracks this season, Anders has remained undefeated in six starts. The win keeps Anders in first place in the points race. By finishing second, Ward edged ahead of Toby Porter for second in the points race as well.
Anders talked about how much fun it was to run side by side with Ward, and said he was fortunate to have such a great racecar.
Ward, who took second, said he was going to go home and work on his car to make it better. Toby Porter was third and Justin Sorrow was fourth. The fifth place finisher was disqualified, moving Ryan Walker into fifth.

Chris Harvell finished right behind Norris, and Bryan Davis was a close third on the last lap. Tim Crowe was fourth and Michael Mote finished fifth.
In the Renegades race, Dale Stancil's racer was smoking and he started in the rear of the field, but he worked his way all the way up and took the checkered flag.

Bobby Emory was third, with Scott Tyner and Lee Alexander completing the top five.
