Northfield native Cole Anderson will make his ARCA Racing Series debut Saturday in the Shore Lunch 250 at Elko Speedway.
Anderson, who grew up near the 3/8-mile Elko track, has extensive experience there in other racing series. A super late model standout, he will drive for Mason Mitchell Motorsports — the 2014 ARCA national stock car champion — in its No. 78 Chevrolet. Saturday's race begins at 8 p.m., with practice at 1:30 p.m., qualifying at 5 and a driver autograph session at 6:15.
Other entrants include the top three drivers in the points standings: Austin Theriault (Ken Schrader Racing), Dalton Sargeant (Cunningham Motorsports) and Shane Lee (Cunningham Motorsports). The race is part of the ARCA Racing Series, a national stock car circuit in its 65th season.

• The PGA of America has planned a "special announcement" for Friday of next week at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska. Hazeltine and the PGA haven't said what the announcement is about. But PGA CEO Pete Bevacqua and Hazeltine President Bob Fafinski will speak. Hazeltine has hosted several prominent tournaments, including last fall's Ryder Cup, the PGA Championship in 2009 and 2002, and the U.S. Open in 1991 and 1970. The PGA has not yet announced a site for the 2024 PGA Championship, so that could be what it is.
• The St. Paul Saints scored four runs in the seventh inning to beat the Salina Stockade 10-6 in Cleburne, Texas.
