Dallas Seavey became the first person to win the Iditarod three times.

For the last four years, either Dallas Seavey or his father, Mitch, have won the 1,000-mile Iditarod sled dog race through Alaska. Early Wednesday morning, 28-year-old Dallas and his team arrived in Nome to win this year’s trek. Four hours later, his dad, who won last year, took second place, prompting reporters to ask if this was a family dynasty. "As far as the family aspect, I think the biggest part with my dad and I is we push each other. What dad wants to get beat by his son? What son wants to get beat by his dad?" said Dallas. Mitch congratulated his son when he finished. "It's really nice to see. And, uh, yeah, second place is not too bad. I wish I had won," he said. Dallas’ win makes him the Iditarod’s only three-time winner. His father has won the title twice. — Read it at Alaska’s News Miner
