Dan was first introduced to the Stage Stop by Race Founder, friend, and mentor Frank Teasley, in 1996. Dan has competed in the Stage Stop six times running teams from JHI Racing. He has also competed in many other races across North America. Dan says “Having spent tens of thousands of miles on remote trails with sled dogs is a unique and inspirational privilege. Working with sled dogs is the essence of teamwork and perseverance”.

Race Director since 2014, Dan enjoys the opportunity it gives him to stay connected to sled dogs, competitors, race crew, and everyone else who loves the sport. As Director, he coordinates and oversees all aspects of the event. “The Stage Stop Race has a great crew, draws top competitors, and is privileged to be supported by a wonderful title sponsor, Pedigree brand.”
2024 marks Warren’s fifth consecutive year as Race Marshall. After a 30-year career racing in North America including multiple Iditarod's and Yukon Quest, Warren retired from dog mushing in 2015. He’s raced the Stage Stop many times, initially to test his dogs — “To be the best, you have to beat the best. Racing against the best is the only way to truly measure your dog team,” was Warren’s mantra. “Frank Teasley’s vision of excellence in competition, coupled with an “A-Team” of veterinarians, makes the Pedigree® Stage Stop Race a showcase of the best in the sport. Without a doubt, the best teams in the world are coming to race this year’s Stage Stop!”
Dr. Veronica Devall received her veterinary degree in 1989 from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Canada. In the first few years after graduation she worked emergency and critical care practice. Afterward, for several years she took on the role of locum (relief) veterinarian, which allowed for a very flexible schedule to travel and volunteer for sled dog races. Pursuing extensive years of post- graduate training has led her to a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation specializing on pain management and veterinary rehabilitation.

Veronica has been involved with sled dog races for 25 years. Races include the Yukon Quest, several Iditarod races and she has been with the Wyoming Stage Stop Race since 2014.
