Eating machine Joey Chestnut chomped his way to a sixth straight victory at the Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Championship at Coney Island.

The San Jose, CA resident and three-time champion of Sportsradio 94 WIP’s Wing Bowl tied his 2009 record of 68 hot dogs eaten in 10 minutes. He remains the top ranked competitive eater in the world.

Three local professional eaters: Royersford’s Bob “Notorious B.O.B.” Shoudt, Drexel Hill’s Micah “Wing Kong” Collins and Downingtown’s Sean “Flash” Gordon competed in the Major League Eating event but got nowhere near Chestnut’s numbers.

Sonya “Black Widow” Thomas, the only female to ever win Wing Bowl, won the womens contenst with 45 hot dogs eaten in 10 minutes. The action was streamed live at noon on ESPN3.com and aired at 3 p.m. on ESPN.

Meanwhile, at 2 p.m. not far from Coney Island, the debut of a rival hot dog contest, the Crif Dog Classic featured South Jersey’s Dave “U.S. Male” Goldstein and fellow local pro eater Dave “Tiger Wings and Things” Brunelli.
