All Alaska Sweepstakes Finish heats up

Musher Mitch Seavey uses a ski pole to increase his speed along the Sweepstakes trail about 2o miles from the finish line in Nome. Seavey eventually overtook leader Jeff King, near the check point of Safety.

The top three contenders in the Sweepstakes have leapfrogged positions throughout the race, but Mitch Seavey just passed Jeff King near the checkpoint of Safety, just 22 miles from Nome. If there are no kinks in the current pace, Seavey will take first place on Front Street in Nome at approximately midnight Friday (today).
