Talkeetna Man Successfully Completes the 2014 Iron Dog

by Phillip Manning ~ February 24th, 2014

The 2014 Iron Dog has concluded, and Talkeetna’s Jacob Hartley successfully completed the more-than 2,000 mile race.  Hartley and teammate Devin LeBarbera completed the course in seventy-seven hours and thirty minutes, putting them in 24th place. Eight of those hours were assessed as a time penalty for replacing an engine on one of the snowmachines.  Fourteen of the thirty-eight teams that entered the event were unable to finish.  Finishing is significant, as it is the only way to not be classified as a rookie in future events.

The winning team was the Wasilla duo of Todd Minnick and Nick Olstad, each of whom have now competed in more than ten Iron Dog races.  Minnick and Olstad posted a time of just under thirty-seven hours.
