Third Seavey finishes Iditarod 42
ANCHORAGE – Veteran racer Danny Seavey became the third member of the mushing family to finish the 2014 Iditarod, crossing the finish line shortly after 1:15 p.m. Thursday.
Ending his third Iditarod in 35th place with eight dogs, he said the persistent winds and poor weather made the trail hard to find.
“Since Unalakeet there haven’t been a whole lot of markers,” Seavey said. “It’s navigation by looking for scratch marks in the snow.”
Dallas Seavey won the race at 4:04 a.m. Tuesday morning, and Mitch Seavey finished in third shortly after 7:30 a.m. the same day.
