Lead Dog Sponsor Spotlight – Donlin Gold

Thanks Donlin Gold!

Donlin Gold has been a supporter of Pete and the Team for several years and their encouragement to Mushing in general has been outstanding. All of the folks at Donlin Gold have been great Fans as well and helped out so much.

They are with us during Training, at the Starting Line, and always the Finish Line. All of the great Donlin Staff have not only been Sponsors, but also great fans as well!

We appreciate not only the support of Kaiser Racing, but in keeping Mushing alive by sponsoring the Iditarod and the Kuskokwim 300. It is support like this that keeps the sport and traditions alive! Thanks Donlin Gold! We truly appreciate having you as our Lead Dod Sponsor of the Team!

Thank You so Much Ryan Air!

Sponsor Spotlight – Northern Air Cargo

Thanks Northern Air Cargo

Transportation… It’s the key to success for a Mushing program. Kaiser Racing is proud of our association with Northern Air Cargo. Their support is very much appreciated. When Team Kaiser needs to get into Anchorage, Northern Air Cargo flies them from Bethel. Last year they also let us document the trip by photographing the unloading process in Anchorage. The Anchorage crew bent over backwards to make sure we had what we needed and of course to make sure the Team was comfy on their ride. Thanks Northern Air Cargo!

Here are the photos from the 2015 unload at the NAC Anchorage terminal. This is something that road system Teams don’t have to do very often, but every Team in the Iditarod does at least once on the return from Nome. Enjoy:


Sponsor Spotlight – Drew’s Foundation

Thanks Drew’s Foundation!

Drew’s Foundation works to spread the message of Suicide Prevention throughout Alaska. Pete has proudly carried the Drew’s Foundation Banner on every race and last year was in Drew’s production, “Never Give Up”. The Foundation has been very helpful each year contributing dog food for the Team. Thanks for being there for us Drew’s Foundation and Paul O’Brien! You truly are one of the Team!

In case you missed it, here is the PSA- Pass it on!


Sponsor Spotlight – Lynden

Lynden has been a supporter of Pete and the Team since the beginning. Their support is so crucial and so appreciated. Not only does Lynden provide support for the mushing program, but when Pete isn’t training or mushing dogs, he is working for Lynden in one of their local companies. In the past, Pete worked as a deckhand with Captain Took Laraux for Bering Marine. Lately, as the mushing program has required more attention, Pete has worked for Knik Construction in Bethel.

Thanks Lynden for all of your support!




Sponsor Spotlight – Bering Sea Animal Clinic

Dr. Bob Sept and Pete and one of the Team

Dr. Bob Sept and Pete and one of the Team

Team Kaiser would like to thank our Veterinary Sponsor, Dr. Bob Sept. DVM. Dr. Bob has been caring for Team Kaiser dogs since Ron was on the sled runner many years ago. It is wholly the care that Pete has for his Team as well as the veterinary care from Bering Sea Animal Clinic that makes Kaiser Racing Kennel success possible.

Dog care is the primary concern for any musher, but Pete’s attention to detail largely comes from the mentorship of Dr. Bob Sept and his knowledge and care for Team Kaiser. Thanks Dr. Bob Sept and his helper extrodinaire, Jackie Klejka, for all their help this year and all of the many years. You are definitely part of the Team!


Sponsors Spotlight – Thanks to the Team!

The Big Sponsor’s get the limelight. And they should. We are so thankful to our Lead Dog sponsors- Donlin Gold, Drew’s Foundation, Northern Air Cargo, Lynden, and Ryan Air.

There is another group though, that must be mentioned. These smaller businesses give whole heartedly to make sure that Pete and the Team are able to make it to the Starting Line. Just like the Team has leaders, it also has dogs in swing and wheel positions. This is also an important part of the Team, and we’d like to recognize them now. Thanks to all of these fine folks for supporting Kaiser Racing Kennel!
