MILWAUKEE -- Fans may not be able to enjoy baseball games at Miller Park this season, but they can still get a taste of the Johnsonville Famous Racing Sausages.

The beloved sixth-inning tradition will live on in the form of the Racing Sausages "Road Show." During select home games, the Sausages will race "from a different, unique location" that will be shown on Miller Park's scoreboard and shared on social media.

The best part? Fans can get in on the action by giving suggestions on where the Racing Sausages should run. As long as your space is within an hour's drive of Milwaukee and can accommodate a 300-foot race, you can submit your spot here by July 31.

“We can’t bring fans to games right now, but we can take the races to the community,” said Brewers President of Business Operations Rick Schlesinger. “It’s not Brewers baseball without the Johnsonville Famous Racing Sausages, and this is a tradition that has to keep running.”

Race locations will not be publicized in advance, so large crowds can be avoided.

For those keeping score at home, the Polish Sausage won 21 races during the 2019 season - the most of any Sausage. We'll see who gets bragging rights this year.
