If you want to fulfill a need for speed this Labor Day, some four-legged animals will do their best to impress.

Canterbury Park is hosting its Wiener Dog Races on Monday. Seventy-two dogs race in seven races.

It was quite the spectacle last year, when more than 12,000 people came out to the park in Shakopee.

The races start at 1:20 p.m. Monday, with the championship around 4:45 pm. The dachshunds race on the main track in front of the crowd between horse races.
