- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - After more than three days and more than 1,000 miles, it is shaping up to be an exciting second half of the Iron Dog Race. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that only 13 seconds separates the top two teams and three other teams are within 45 minutes of the lead. The leading teams pulled into Nome on Tuesday, where they will wait for a day before getting back on the trail on Thursday morning. The team of Brian Dick, from Thief River Falls, Minnesota, and Eric Quam, of Eagle River, were the first racers to reach Nome. They pulled into the town 13 seconds ahead of defending champions Marc McKenna, of Anchorage, and Dusty Van Meter, of Kasilof. The 2,000-mile snowmachine race is expected to finish Saturday in Fairbanks.
