Joey Chestnut Wins It Again at Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest 2017

Joey Chestnut wins 2017 Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest
For the tenth time, Joey Chestnut wins the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest taking in 72 wieners at this year's hot dog eating contest sponsored by Nathan's Famous.  Chestnut stuffed down eight less dogs and buns that he intended to.  His goal was 80.  Chestnut "Jaws" ate two more than last year, beating his record and the most hot dogs and buns eaten at the hot dog eating contest in Coney Island. 

Carmen Cincotti came in second with a walloping 62 hot dogs and buns, and Matt "Megatoad" Stonie lagged behind in third with 48 dogs and buns.

Ten years ago Takeru Kobayashi was the reining champ being the six time winner of Coney Island's annual 4th of July Hot Dog eating contest.  A Coney Island traditional still going strong which draws huge crowds to the area.
