Alaska's Iditarod could end with a 'family photo finish'
NOME, Alaska- There's a little bit of deja vu in this year's Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.
GPS tracking on the Iditarod website shows defending champion Dallas Seavey in the lead of this year's race. He's about 10 miles outside of the finish line in Nome, and traveling at about 9 mph.
The man in second place is Seavey's father, Mitch Seavey. GPS tracking shows him to be about 6 miles behind his son.
If this holds up, it will match last year's top two results.
If the 29-year-old Dallas Seavey wins, he will join an elite list of mushers with four Iditarod championships.
The mushers with four titles are the late Susan Butcher, Martin Buser, Lance Mackey, Doug Swingly and Jeff King. The only person with more victories is Rick Swenson with five championships.
Mitch Seavey has won twice.
