Two sisters will race against each other Mar. 8 in the International Pancake Day Race, as Melanie Knudsen, 19, joins her sister Mikayla, 21, as a contestant. This will be Melanie ’ s first International race, while Mikayla is competing for the fourth time. Other contestants are first-time racers Misty Vaught, 35, and Nicole Schowengerdt, 28.
