Reese Madden is from Nome, Alaska and was raised around mushing. He took a break from mushing to do snowmachine racing, but started his kennel a couple years ago after an accidental litter. Madden's kennel was named Amagupiaq kennel by an elder. It means "big white wolf." Madden's experience includes a 2021 Kuskokwim 300 finish. He would like to thank Aaron Burmiester, Joe Garnie, and Robert Madden.
