New Purse and Schedule for the 2020 Kearney Dog Sled Races

With the changes to the KDSR races this year, comes new purse breakdowns as well. We are excited to be able to offer exceptional support to our mushers who take the time to join us on race weekend. We race for the joy and the happiness of our dogs, but some dog food money is always helpful!
