second Norton Sound 450
On the Y-K Delta
Pete Kaiser from Bethel won his second straight Norton Sound 450 sled dog race on Feb. 8 over a shortened course. Deep cold, wind chill and predictions of worse conditions led the racers and race officials to turn the competitors back to Unalakleet once they had reached the 240-mile mark at Shaktoolik. Kaiser and his dog team will run the Iditarod next month.
