Iditarod Leaders Pass Through Rainy Pass

Ellen Lockyer, KSKA – Anchorage

Iditarod leaders are into Rainy Pass checkpoint, and a hand full of them have moved beyond it.   Robert Buntzen is in the lead, followed by Paul Gebhardt, but Lance Mackey is not far behind them.  As APRN’s Ellen Lockyer reports, of the top 20 dog drivers jockeying for position in this year’s race, two represent a changing of the guard in the Last Great Race.
