LOS ALAMITOS, CA—MAY 22, 2023— The Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals returns for its 26th running when the fastest doxies in the world converge at Los Alamitos Race Course on Saturday, July 15.

The Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals will get underway at approximately 6 p.m., (PDT) with proceeds from the event benefiting the Seal Beach Animal Care Center, a non-profit group dedicated to finding home for stray animals in the Orange County area.                                                                                                                       

The Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals consists of 50-yard dashes for dachshunds over the racetrack at Los Alamitos, the same one where the horses run. A string of four-legged sausages will race throughout the night with the winning wieners moving on to the 26th Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals final.

The champion wiener will also receive a doghouse in the shape of a Wienerschnitzel restaurant plus the "Fastest Wiener in the West" trophy.

Local doxies from Cypress, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, Long Beach plus many more from all throughout Southern California will be in action on this action-packed, zany, and wild night of fun for the entire family.
