It's that time of year again. The 19th annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals will return to Los Alamitos Race Course in mid July of 2014. The 50-yard dash for Dachshunds has been the most popular event at Los Alamitos each of the last 18 years with about 195,000 people enjoying the event over the years. The 2013 event drew a crowd of more than 9,000 for another great Wiener Nationals event. The event concluded with a memorable final with Buddy Black of Belmont Shore being crowned the new champion.
If you have a dachshund, or know someone that does, and would like to enter the Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals at Los Alamitos Race Course here is what you need to do.
Write us a story and tell us why your Wiener Dog should be in the Wiener Nationals. Please make the letter as creative as possible because creativity, rather than speed, counts here. You can send us a drawing; poem; essay; funny photo; link to Facebook page, Twitter news feed, YouTube, DVD, etc, you make it and we will judge it. We'll return your entries at your request. All letters must be received by June 17, 2014 to be considered.
Dogs will be selected to compete in trial races with winner, or wiener, of each trial advancing to the Wienerschnitzel Wiener National at Los Alamitos Race Course. We expect to receive hundreds of entries, so get your entry in early. There's no fee to enter - in fact your doggie will win $100 if he/she comes in first place in one of the trials and an additional $900 if he/she wins the championship race.
All of the trials, and the final, will take place on July 19, 2014 at Los Alamitos. The trials will begin at approximately 6:30 p.m. and the final will be held at about 9:15 p.m.
Wienerschnitzel has been our sponsor for the past 18 years and we expect the 2014 running to be another great event. Of course, the entire purpose of this event is to raise funds for the Seal Beach Animal Care Center. We raised around $12,000 for the Care Center in 2013.
