Justin Fink wins first ever Jr. Race to the Sky

If you have been to either of our Meet the Mushers, you have met Justin Fink.

Always helpful.

Always hard working.

And always, always polite.

So it stands to reason this young man should succeed in life.

And succeed he HERE.

Congratulations Justin ~ on a first place finish at the Jr. Race to the Sky in Montana!!

POSTSCRIPT:  Received a call from Justin today between photo ops.  He states having Jason Barron as his "handler" made all the difference in the world.  (I should say so!)  Jason and Harmony were at the start, and the finish line for Justin.  Therein lies such proof of dedication between mushers in this amazing world of sled dogs.
