NEW YORK (AP) - Joey Chestnut has downed 69 franks and devoured his own record in the annual hot dog eating contest.
The San Jose, California, man known as Jaws scarfed down the dogs and buns to win the Fourth of July contest. He takes home $10,000 and a mustard-yellow champion's belt.
The total beat his personal best by one wiener. Last year, Chestnut won the competition with 62 hot dogs.
Second place went to Matt Stonie with 51 hot dogs.
Chestnut has now bested his former rival, Takeru Kobayashi, with seven wins. Kobayashi competed in a different eating contest.
