Expect an Iditarod Finish Early Wednesday — and Possibly, a Chase to Nome

Looking down a snow-covered street in a rural Alaska town with a large "Iditarod" banner hanging overhead and a carved wooden archway standing in the center of the street.

Around 2 to 4am Wednesday morning: that’s when KNOM expects a championship finish in Iditarod 2019. Bethel musher Pete Kaiser holds a slim yet potentially decisive lead: 6 miles ahead of Joar Leifseth Ulsom, with only 50 miles to the finish line. Nonetheless, Kaiser’s victory is far from certain.
