BIG PINEY, Wyo. — Aaron Peck of Grand Prairie, Alberta, is in first place on the sixth day of the International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race.
Peck and the other mushers were racing near Big Piney and Marbleton in western Wyoming on Thursday. They raced on Louis Lake Road near Lander on Wednesday because there wasn't enough snow at Bruce's Campground in Sinks Canyon.
Buddy Streeper of Fort Nelson, British Columbia, is in second place in the race and Lars Lindh of Sweden is in third. Jerry Bath of Lander has moved to eighth place.
Streeper said he spent three weeks training for the race in Yellowstone to get used to racing at high altitude.
The nearly 350-mile race ends Saturday near Evanston.
