Business Editors and Food Writers

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2002

Wienerschnitzel, the world's largest hot dog chain, is sponsoring the 7th Annual "Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals," a 50-yard dachshund dash, at Los Alamitos Race Course on Saturday, June 1 at 6:30 p.m. with the first horse race immediately following.

All the proceeds of the race will benefit the Seal Beach Animal Care Center.

After extensive training, 64 lean, mean wiener-dogs (dachshunds), which were chosen from hundreds of applicants based on creativity, will compete in this year's Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals. More than 5,000 race enthusiasts are expected to attend this year's event to watch the Wiener Nationals and bet on their favorite horses.

The race consists of eight heats with the finalist from each trail advancing to the final race. The victor of the final race will be crowned the "2002 Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals Top Dog," and earn his or her owner a $500 prize. Total purse for the Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals is $1,000; $500 for first including Wienerschnitzel doghouse, $200 for second and $50 for third through eighth place.

"The Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals has become a popular event in Orange County for race fans and families alike," said Tom Amberger, director of marketing for Wienerschnitzel. "Not only are the Nationals a great place to see the fastest wiener dogs in the West, it also supports the Seal Beach Animal Care Center."

Tickets for the Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals can be purchased at the Seal Beach Animal Care Center for $5, with proceeds going directly to the Care Center. Tickets can also be purchased for $3 at Los Alamitos Race Course. Children and parking are free. Los Alamitos Race Course is located on Katella Avenue, two miles east of the 605 Freeway at 4961 Katella Avenue, Los Alamitos, Calif.
