Combined with his father's win in 2013, Dallas's win Wednesday gave the Seavey family title to victories in four straight Iditarods and propelled Dallas into rarefied air.  Only six other mushers in race history have three or more victories, a list topped by five-time champion Rick Swenson. Seavey gave full credit to the dogs. "As long as you take care of the dog team and make good decisions, good things will happen,'' he said.

Jeff King maintains that a "rabid seal" that charged him on the Iditarod Trail outside the checkpoint of Koyuk wasn't a hallucination. Hear his harrowing tale for yourself.
