After teams arrive into Nome, they’ll take a few hours to rest before making repairs to their snowmachines. Teams are allowed 20 minutes off the clock for inspection, giving them time to determine what parts they might need to make repairs. Once they begin actual work on their machines, the clock starts ticking and counts as time on the course.
We’ll start capturing images and videos from the garage as teams start working and post them on Facebook and the website.
Meanwhile, the rest of the volunteers and Iron Dog staff are busy setting up for the halfway ceremonies and banquet at the National Guard Armory. Join us at 6:00 P.M., Wednesday, February 22, 2012 for food, awards and thanks to all those who make the race possible.
The restart of the race begins 8:00 A.M. Thursday. For details on the garage procedures, work time and Nome restart, check out the Pro Class rules (Sections 10 and 11).
