Paige Drobny came in very early this morning to take 4th place around 2:30 in the morning and Ed Hopkins finished around 4:30 this morning to round out our top 5.
Torsten Kohnert came in at 6th, while we had our first rookie finisher, Katherine Kieth come in at around noon on Wednesday.
Jessie Royer came in around 4 o'clock this afternoon.

We did have another Racer scratch this afternoon.
Gaetan Pierrard scratched in Central for the well-being of his team.
There are four mushers currently Neck-and-neck at the Mile 101 Checkpoint, whichever one of them winds up on the Tail End of that pack, will be our new Red Lantern Holder.
We'll have more on that as it develops.
