Fairbanks Musher Ken Anderson Captures Kobuk 440

Veteran Fairbanks musher Ken Anderson crossed the finish line in Kotzebue at midday Sunday to capture the Kobuk 440, the last race of the season for distance racers.Despite a top prize of $12,000 from a purse of $50,000, the race attracted just 10 teams, one of the smallest fields in race history. The veteran Anderson, 12th in last month’s Iditarod, won in 45 hours, 47 minutes, edging Scott Smith by 10 minutes. Smith, who earned $9,000 for finishing second, notched the race of his career. In three Iditarods, he’s never placed higher than 34th.Read more here: http://www.alaskadispatch.com/article/fairbanks-musher-ken-anderson-captures-kobuk-440
