NOME — Dallas Seavey won the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race on Tuesday evening, becoming the youngest musher to win the nearly 1,000-mile race across Alaska.
Seavey turned 25 on March 4, the day the race officially started north of Anchorage. He was the first musher to reach Nome, his nine dogs trotting into the Bering Sea coastal community at 7:29 p.m. Tuesday. Dallas is the son of Mitch Seavey, 52, a Kenai Peninsula musher who won the race in 2004.
The winner greeted family and friends briefly, then turned to hug his dogs.
