Jeff King won the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race back in 1989. He is also well-known on the Iditarod trail, having won Alaska’s other 1,000 mile sled dog race four times. This year, he returned to the Quest, but decided to scratch from the race after only 300 miles.

KSKA reporter Daysha Eaton visits with a woman who has had 15 top-10 finishes in the race, DeeDee Jonrowe and her team to learn what makes a good leader.
