At the culmination of an exciting couple of days of racing, Dallas Seavey claimed his second Iditarod win after overtaking Aliy Zirkle at the Safety checkpoint.
Zirkle slid into Nome 2 minutes and 22 seconds after Seavey to take second place for the third-straight year.
The officials times for the two top finishers Tuesday were:
Seavey: 8 days. 13 hours. 4 minutes. 19 seconds. This is a new Iditarod record.
Zirkle: 8 days. 13 hours. 6 minutes. 41 seconds.
Last year’s champion, Mitch Seavey, finished third and was trailed by Norway’s Joar Leifseth Ulsom, and four-time winner Martin Buser.
This is Dallas Seavey’s second win. He won in 2012. Last year, his father won.
