11 Grade - Florida Virtual

16 years old

Lacy Kuehl, 16, is an eleventh grader in Sarasota, Florida. During summer of 2022, Lacy came to Alaska to race at the Alaska Raceway. After a rained out event, she went dryland mushing with Nic Petit and was hooked! He offered her a team for the 2023 Jr. Iditarod and after some thought she said yes. Although she has never experienced weather colder than 30°F, she's excited for a new challenge in life. No matter what kind or race, be it car or dog sled, Lacy runs to spread awareness for diabetes. Her family founded Drive for Diabetes Awareness. Though still new to the sport, Lacy hopes to continue running sled dogs after high school.
