The leader in the America's Gas Balloon Race that launched Sunday at the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque is now just 32 miles southwest of Memphis.

By looking at the Balloon Fiesta's race tracker, you can see that most of the hydrogen balloon are drifting across the South.

But one balloon looks to be tracking north toward Iowa.

All five balloons are still in the air - the one that makes it the farthest wins the race.
