Fan of the Wiener Nationals,

We are on the lookout for a few good wieners for the 25th annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals to be held at Los Alamitos Race Course. The 50-yard dash for Dachshunds has been the most popular event at Los Alamitos each year with over 242,000 people enjoying the event over the years. The event always draws a crowd of over 8,000 to enjoy a great night at the races during the Wiener Nationals. We expect another great evening of racing.

The event will be held once allowed by statewide and local guidelines. The actual date of the event is pending currently.

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, more than speed, counts here. You must send a photo of your dachshund. You can also send us a drawing; poem; essay; funny photo; or send us a link to Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, etc. Or send us a video link or digital video. If you make it, we will consider it. We'll return your entries at your request. Please send your entry by June 1, 2020 to or mail it to:

IMPORTANT: Please include a phone number and a photograph of your prized dachshund.

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.
