Defending champion Dallas Seavey pulled into White Mountain at 10:10 a.m. Tuesday, taking another step toward what would be his third Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race title.
Expect Dallas Seavey to head for the Iditarod finish line in Nome a little after 6 p.m. Tuesday. Will his father Mitch Seavey chase him over the final stretch of mushing?

Introduction

Whether reporting on powerful oil companies or on residents who live far from the urban centers where decisions are made, Alaska Dispatch's goal is to take an unflinching look at the state, from its massive riches to its abject poverty, and tell these stories to Alaskans and to the world.
