Take the past 15 years of the International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Races and put them together and it still won’t hold a candle to what is to be witnessed for number 16 this year. That’s how Race Organizer Frank Teasley describes the race starting from the Jackson Town Square Friday Night. Teasley points out that the race has never before had competitors include the top racer in long-distance, the top racer in mid-distance, and the top racer in spring all in the same field. So, could we say this has become the second biggest race after the famed Iditarod in Alaska? Teasley says the IPSSSDR may be pushing for the top spot among sled dog racers. Teasley says those who have seen the starts over the past 15 years have never seen a show like what is planned for Friday’s start of the race.
