Before 11:00 a.m. the pair had already checked out of Kaltag, while the next team, Team 6 of Brad George and Robby Schachle, checked out of Unalakleet at 8:47 a.m.
After this week's weather delays, race officials changed the layover structure, but so far Team 20's Scott Faeo and Chad Gueco are the first to declare their 6-hour layover, when they arrived in Unalakleet at 10:14 a.m. Friday.
