As Ian noted in today’s open thread, reader and commenter Jean will be keeping us updated on the Iron Dog race in the comments sections. Also, we have a terrific new photo from Chuck Jr. from yesterday’s race along with some great photos of the starting line submitted by C4P reader AKblestmom.
Chuck Heath Jr. has posted a message on Facebook promising he’ll have more photos posted on his website very soon.
The first photo from Chuck is a shot of the Governor, Chuck Sr., and off-road racing legend Walker Evans at the start of Sunday’s race.
This next set is from AKblestmom who was kind enough to e-mail into us. They’re of Team #11 at the starting line.
UPDATE: Governor Palin has posted the following Iron Dog update on Facebook:
Iron Dog Update: The racers are taking their layover in McGrath; top teams are over 280 miles into the race and within 40 minutes of each other. Our prayers are with the injured pilots in the Iron Dog plane crash.
