Brent Sass checks in at Two Rivers Checkpoint on Sunday evening, the final checkpoint of the 2019 Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race. Sass, the 2015 Quest champion, was the first musher to reach Two Rivers, about 73 miles from the finish line, holding a sizable lead over the nearest followers. Whoever wins is expected to cross the finish line in downtown Fairbanks around mid-day today. Feb. 10, 2019. Robin Wood/News-Miner.
