The Milwaukee Brewers, host of the world-famous, deadly serious Sausage Race, are adding a Chorizo as the fifth racing sausage in the nightly race at Miller Park. The Chorizo "will be adorned with a sombrero and decked out in red, green and white and will be formally introduced on Thursday at a press conference at Miller Park."

The Chorizo joins Hot Dog, Bratwurst, Polish and Italian in the race and is seen as a way for the Brewers to boost their standing among the Latino community, though it's definitely going to hurt them with Lou Dobbs.
