We are so proud of Jennifer Peeks. She and the team really had no expectation of winning. The green rookie just was going to try to have a clean race and have a good time. She is the first Woman to win the Bogus Creek 150 and Team Kaiser couldn’t be happier for her. Congratulations Jennifer!!
Our congratulations go out to Lewis Pavilla of Bad River Kennels from Kwethluk. They were the team to beat and besting them is a true accomplishment. Their dedication to the Bogus Creek 150 is truly what makes it special. I talked with Lewis after his finish and he told me he had won the 150 FOUR times! What an accomplishment! Here are a few photos of this great Musher and his wife!
The whole team was raring to go. It started with Jenn’s team– They were really excited to be heading out. Then came Pete and the First String. They were all happy and just seemed ready to head out. Pete and the family were also in good spirits. Janet’s nephew showed up by surprise from Illiamna to help out with chores and such! What a great surprise! In any case, they left without problems. The Kusko Boys from the Iditarod, Mike Williams Jr. and Pete Kaiser left the chute together. Kind of a neat thing after the last couple of years running together on the Iditarod.
Jennifer Peeks is a big part of Kaiser Racing Kennel. I have an interview with her as well that I will post shortly. Here are her Starting Line photos from the Bogus Creek 150. Go Team Kaiser!!
