Dr. Tim's Fuels Iditarod Champion



Published:

Dr. Tim's sponsored Iditarod racer Dallas Seavey, of Willow, Ala., won his second Iditarod dog sled race in Nome, Ala., in March. The victory marked the third year in a row that the winning musher was feeding Dr. Tim's Momentum Dog Food as their dry kibble.

Seavey took the lead just a few hours from the finish while setting a new course record of 8 days, 14 hours and 9 minutes. He finished two minutes ahead of the second place finisher in the narrowest victory since 1978.

Trail conditions were extremely poor with little snow and mush ice as the Alaskan winter was unseasonably warm this year, making the race difficult. Many mushers had to drop out of the race due to equipment failures or personal injury after the first fourth of the trail. Further up the trail, it worsened again as glare ice and strong winds made travel difficult.

The top four finishers were all fed Dr. Tim's Momentum dog food as well. Dr. Tim's Pet Food Company, based in Marquette, Mich., has been developing and selling pet food since 2004.
