[I’m not sure what’s going on, but now the Iditarod website doesn’t have Mackey into Shaktoolik on the Leaderboard, but on Mackey’s page it does show him in and out]
Mackey- Shaktoolik – IN- 16:08 OUT- 19:00 DOGS- 12 Time- 6:20 (From UNK)
King- Shaktoolik- IN- 16:45 DOGS- 13 Time- 6:29 (From UNK)
Like Ali and Frasier, these two mushers at the front of the 2010 Iditarod are duking it out like Boxers in an All or Nothing Match. Mackey arrived in Shaktoolik 37 minutes before King. He gained a whole NINE minutes on the stretch which is a virtual tie. Someone’s got to blink, but both of these guys are locked in an epic battle. This has the makings of one of the great dueling matches of all time. Sure glad I’m here to watch it!
