#18 — Monica Magnusson from Cheboygan, Michigan.

The 2018 Eukanuba 8-Dog Classic Winner returns to run this year’s Pedigree Stage Stop Race. After 14 years supporting her husband Bruce, Monica decided it was time to cross the “Big Race” off her bucket list. Bruce and Monica work together running a forging manufacturing business as well as their kennel operation so it seems only natural to compete against each other in the big race. Their biggest challenge will be writing the daily blog after each race as Monica expects to be too tired to consider it! “I’m super excited about the changes Pedigree has made to the race format, and the outstanding competitors it has attracted. I look forward to sharing the trail with them!”
