Are there Dachshund races in Daytona beach Florida?
why would anyone want to make poor little dachshunds race? ____________________________________________________________ An excerpt from www.volusiaspeedwaypark.net: BARBERVILLE, FL – July 30, 2008 — Anticipation is building for the first ever Barberville Wiener Nationals when Volusia Speedway presents the Dog Days of Summer Night on Saturday, August 2. Fans will be treated to free hot dogs (while supplies last). Wiener dogs (dachshunds) will take to the track for special racing excitement during intermission. A large showing of the short-legged canines is expected for this event. Florida Short Track Report is on board with the action offering a special $20 bonus to the winning dog so he/she can be treated to something special – “a cheeseburger, or chicken strips”, suggests Tom Sherrill. Along with all the Dog Days fun, Volusia Speedway welcomes Mini-Stock division sponsor, RBC Bank to the Speedway. Hot weekly racing will include not only the RBC Bank Mini-Stocks, but the Daytona Dodge Chrysler Late Models, Taylor Racing Products Sportsman, UMP DIRTcar Street Stocks and Aerotec Aluminum 4-Cylinder Pure Stocks. As part of the Dog Days promotion, racers will be able to make use of the “Lucky Dog” concept used for lapped cars in NASCAR racing during the feature races. And don’t forget that coming up on Saturday, August 9: Rasslin and Racin at Volusia Speedway. FWA – Florida Wrestling Association wrestling begins at 5:30 followed by racing on the south’s fastest ½ mile at 7:30. One $12 ticket for two big shows!
