FAIRBANKS -- Cleaning up for thousands of fans of the Arctic Man snowmachine race is a big job.
More than 10,000 people showed up earlier this month to watch the competitors cross the finish line in the Hoodoo Mountains, and they came to party.
Alaska State Troopers had two helicopters, 25 officers, five additional staff and a new command center on loan from the Department of Homeland Security for the event.
Troopers say there were some arrests, including for driving under the influence, minors consuming alcohol and outstanding warrants.
Sixteen tons of trash were hauled out of the area.
