Mackey and Bailey Sprint to Finish in Top 25!
Lance Mackey crossed the finish line in Nome just 2 minutes and 26 seconds ahead of Jodi Bailey to place 22nd and 23rd in the 2012 Iditarod. Closing the gap over the last stretch from Safety, Bailey made the 22 mile run 21 minutes faster than the 4-time champ. Both teams were spotted running hard up off the ice and down Front Street. Considering the challenges of the nearly thousand-mile race, it is a good finish for both teams!
