UPDATE: Live Stream Over

Saturday, 8:08 PM: The Iron Dog Facebook page reports:

Team #11, Palin/Quam are in the lead. Team #10, Huntington/Olds, just check out at Nenana and are 17 minutes behind.

Saturday, 7:31 PM: KTUU reports that "Team 11 Palin/Quam is through Nenana according to GPS tracker."

Saturday, 7:29 PM: Apparently KTUU will livestream the finish here, which will come sooner than expected (h/t multiple commentators).

Saturday, 6:10: Team 11 in the lead? FB:

It’s a race, Team 11 Palin/Quam is through Manley. Checkers said they haven’t seen Team 10 Huntington/Olds yet. KTUU Blog updating as information comes in:

Saturday, 6:03 pm: Looks like Team #11 has made it to the checkpoint in Manley. Only two more to go until Fairbanks. Next stop, Nenana.

Saturday, 5:15 pm: They’re off! Team 11 close on Team 10’s heels.
