Dachshunds raced for Taylor Swift tickets for their owners Friday during K-BULL 93's promotional contest in Sandy.

The South Towne Mall was transformed into a racetrack for the 50 wiener dog contestants.

The grand prize "wiener" got its owner two tickets to the sold-out Taylor Swift concert on June 1. They also received a $500 certificate to Willow Creek Pet Center, a $100 gift to the South Towne Center and a puppy pampering night’s stay at Hotel Monaco in Salt Lake City.
