The Beekmans were only the third team to win the prize without winning one leg prior to the finale.
"We were the underdogs," Josh said after their big win. "And what I hope this proves to people whether they're a minority, out of work or they're losing their house or whatever, that if they just keep going and just keep working as hard as they can, people will help and at some time, you will win."
The couple is looking forward to using the money to spend more time together on their farm in upstate New York. “This race has really brought us back together again,” Brent said. “I had to work in the city, and he’s on the farm. So winning this race actually will bring us physically together again…for the next 50 years.”
