  RACE LIVE TRACKER 



Nicolas Petit Wins CB300
This is the 5th time Nicolas Petit has won the race. He finished just about 4 miles ahead of Brent Sass. This year's race has been run at much better temperatures than last year.

Because race temperatures were much colder last year, Nicolas Petit missed the race when his truck wouldn't start. 

The temperature at race start last year was -44 degrees at Gulkana Airport. Nicolas Petit became a race volunteer and helped mushers get through the very cold conditions.

Brent Sass Takes Second Place

Brent Sass and Nicolas Petit traded first and second spots throughout much of the race, but in the end Nicolas Petit pulled ahead and maintained a 4-mile lead   to the finish line.

The 2023 race began in downtown Glennallen at Mile 188 of the Glenn Highway on Saturday, at 10 am, January 14th. It ran clockwise around the race route this year.
