NOME, Alaska (AP) -- Waving a large American flag as he entered the finish area, Martin Buser captured his fourth Iditarod on Tuesday and completed the 1,100-mile race in record time.
He and his dogs ended their trek from Anchorage in eight days, 22 hours, 46 minutes -- the first musher to do so in less than nine days.
"It feels pretty good," said Buser, who arrived at 8:46 a.m. "It's going to be exciting to hold that record for a while."
