NASCAR Dachshunds

And we're not talking about wiener races today! Meet 'Roxy' and 'Daisy,' the pretty red smooth dachshunds owned by NASCAR driver David Reutimann, his wife Lisa, and daughter Emilia. NASCAR.com took a look at where their drivers' pets go on race weekends. Most of them head to K9 Cabins & Dog Trails, Inc. in Troutman, NC; the ultimate NASCAR-style accommodation for canines belonging to some of the sports biggest stars and industry players.
"My husband [crew chief for Richard Childress Racing's No. 29 Busch Series team] knew I wanted to own a really unique dog boarding facility and he has made my dream come true," said K9 Cabins owner Elena Smith. "I always had a dream of taking care of dogs," she said, "so before we opened I went to a lot of races and started handing out business cards."
Each cabin is themed -- Harley Davidson, NASCAR, Gone Fishing, Jimmy Buffett, etc. -- and equipped with a doggie door that leads to an outside patio. Read all about it at NASCAR.com.

David Reutimann talked about Roxy and Daisy on his blog: "They're cute but they can be a handful at times. Of course, they're spoiled and occasionally make a trip to the race track with us as well."
