New World Record Set in Tempe

Once again Tempe, AZ, is making headlines around the globe. On Saturday Joey "Jaws" Chestnut of San Jose, CA, downed 59 1/2 hotdogs in 12 minutes at the Southwest Regional Hot Dog Eating Championship in Tempe, shattering the previous world record of 53 1/4 dogs, set by Takeru Kobayashi last year. Chestnut will now face Kobayashi at Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog-Eating Contest to battle it out for the coveted Mustard Belt.
