Two new track records where posted when Montana Creek Dog Musher Association held its 4th Point Race Saturday 13th of December.
With temperatures around zero F and light snow in the air it was a perfect day for dog mushing. Brenda Nicoli, Nenana once again posted the fastest time in the 4-dog class and today she set a new track record.
Debbie Duncan from Willow raced to a second place in the 4 dog, beaten by Brenda with 27 seconds. Debbie Duncan also won the 6-dog class with a run nine seconds faster than Christian Taveau.
Christian was not too disappointed with the results in the 6-dog class after he showed that he has more fast dogs and posted the fastest time in 8 dog and a forth place in the open class. Dori Hollingsworth of Seward, had a strong team and finished second in the 8-dog class, 53 seconds after Christian Taveau. Brenda Nicoli finished in third place.
In the open class eight teams started out on the 9-mile long trail. Fastest team today, just like last Saturday, was Darryl Hollingsworth of Seward. Today he set a new track record with his string of 12 dogs. Bill Kornmuller, Willow, came in second with a 20-dog team and Egil Ellis, Willow, took a third place with his 14-dog team.
