Thundering across the turf at the Festival Gardens in Nelson Park, over 100 dashing Dachshunds dueled for the title of 2012 Grand Champion Racer.  As hundreds of people cheered and the sun dipped below the horizon, Becker (raced by the girls from Hendrick Home) was the fastest Dachshund in West Texas AGAIN!  Becker also won in 2011.  Come see if he can hold onto the championship, or pass the torch to a new racer!
