Iron Dog announced that Scott Davis has confirmed that he will be partnered with Todd Palin in the 2012 Iron Dog race.
The announcement brings questions about who Palins former partner, Eric Quam will race with. So far, there are only rumors.
Iron Dog suspects that Mark McKenna (who is partnered with Dusty VanMeter) may still be struggling with his shoulder injury causing him to possibly drop out. Unofficial speculation is that Quam and VanMeter will join forces.
The rules on switching partners state that substitutions are allowed under race rules, so long as paperwork is in on time.
