Zoom Lens: Dallas following Mitch

Dallas Seavey Departs for Shaktoolik

Dallas Seavey is trailing behind his dad, Mitch as the 45th Iditarod reaches the Gold Coast.  Mitch came and went from Unalakleet.  Dallas rested for almost 4 hours.  Mitch will have to rest at the next checkpoint.  Where will the balance be in running, resting and speed for each of these highly competitive men?  Mitch could earn his third Iditarod victory.  On the other hand, Dallas could make it four in a row and tie Lance Mackey’s record and at the same claim his fifth Iditarod Championship to tie Rick Swenson.  Time will tell and we’ll know the answer midweek.
