FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race will get a boost next year from a big-name musher.

Four-time Iditarod champion Jeff King has entered the 2015 race.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1pcVs2k) reports the Denali Park musher is not a stranger to the race between Whitehorse, Yukon, and Fairbanks.

King was in the first Yukon Quest in 1984 and competed in the first seven. He won the race in 1989.

He says he plans to enter both the Yukon Quest and the Iditarod.

Yukon Quest entrants also include 2013 and 2014 winner Allen Moore.
