Dallas Seavey wins his second Iditarod dog race

NOME, Alaska (AP) - Dallas Seavey ran a blistering pace and took the lead just hours before the finish to win this year's Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.

Seavey was the first musher under the famed burled arch in Nome.

He had to come from a three-hour deficient to overcome mushers Jeff King and Aliy Zirkle in the last 77 miles. He was third into the second-to-last checkpoint in White Mountain, where mushers are required to take an eight-hour rest.

The 27-year-old musher also won the race in 2012.
