(CNN)Dallas Seavey became a four-time Iditarod champion Tuesday, pulling into Nome, Alaska, in record-breaking time to cheering crowds lining the streets.
His dad, Mitch Seavey, came in second place in the 44th Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, but still beat his son's old 2014 record by almost an hour, according to the Alaska Dispatch News.
Dallas Seavey, 28, finished this year's race -- about 1,000 miles -- in eight days, 11 hours, 20 minutes and 16 seconds, breaking his previous record by nearly two hours, the Iditarod Trail Committee reported.
Seavey pulled into Nome around 2 a.m. (6 a.m. ET), running beside his team of six dogs.
In 2005, he was the youngest musher ever to participate in the race and finished in 51st place, according to Iditarod.com. His win in 2012 made him the youngest champion ever. This year's victory is his fourth in five years.
