The standings in the Yukon Quest sled dog race have shifted dramatically in the last 12 hours. Longtime race veteran, William Kleedhen, looked like he had a good shot at winning the race. But he ran into trouble near Eagle Summit, one of the toughest sections of the race and dropped back to fifth place. Hugh Neff is currently in the lead, but is facing a two hour penalty at the final checkpoint, 45 miles from Fairbanks. Jon Little is in second place, followed closely by Sebastian Schnuelle with Brent Sass a few hours behind.
