Swifty Swines race to the finish line during Rodeo Austin

Some of them are fast and some are slow but they all know how to squeal. The Swifty Swines race along the Pork Chop Downs International Speedway out at Rodeo Austin.

The fan favorite draws crowds of kids who love to see the little and not so little pigs race.

"We race pigs six times a day from four week old market hogs to two year old pot bellies that are big and fat," said Shannon Johnson.

Johnson introduces the participants. Up first? Kevin Bacon, Brad Pig, Brittney Spareribs and Kim Kardashingham just to name a few.

"The pigs are so cute. You never know what they're going to do sometimes they turn around and go back to the beginning of the track," said Johnson.

"The pigs run really really fast all around here," said Grayson, 4. Grayson also knows they're racing for cookies.

The pigs race each day during Rodeo Austin. The rodeo ends March 26th.
