After seeing the popularity that came with the Stampede wiener dog races, Chuck Brennan has decided to turn the former speedway into a full time Dachshund delight.
“It’s going to be great fun! A huge race course fully dedicated to the entertainment of wiener dog racing. The Stampede pulled off this great time a couple weeks ago, and I believe there is a real audience that would love this,” said one representative close to the situation.
Representatives close to the situation believe the attraction will be able to bring in tourism from all over the area.
“We think the tourism dollars for the track are endless. We’ll make a small profit on merchandise sales and will of course have big name sponsors and promotions. We think this could be a big draw for tourists and locals alike,” said the representative.
Fans will be able to purchase gear for their favorite racers, but will not be able to bet on the races thanks to Governor Noem’s “anti-fun in South Dakota” laws.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing those lovely pups race around the track and I want to support them all by buying their merchandise! But, what’s this whole not being able to bet on them thing? We have more casinos in Sioux Falls than schools, and the casinos do nothing but bring crime to the city. I would fully support being able to tax winnings on sports gambling,” said one wiener dog racing fan we spoke with.
No official date has been set to reopen the track.
