ANCHORAGE - The Nenana Ice Classic jackpot is down slightly from last year.
Ice Classic manager Cherrie Forness says the jackpot is $279,030 - down about $4,700 from last year. Forness says that's not as much of a dip as expected given the struggling economy.
She says 234,973 tickets were sold.
Forness says she expects the ice will go out and the tripod will begin to move in the next three to five days.
