As The Crazy News reported last month the dual between Joey Chestnut of the United States and Takeru Kobayashi of Japan was hotting up.

Today the rivalry crescendoed as America celebrated Independence Day with the famous Nathan’s hotdog eating contest in New York.

The American food extraordinaire beat the reigning six time Japanese champion in a thriller, breaking a new record. The nut scoffed down 66 hot dogs in 12 minutes. That’s a rate of one dog every 10.9 seconds.

Kobayashi finished second with an amazing 63 hot dogs consumed, despite the fact that he was suffering from a jaw injury and a pulled wisdom tooth.

 Here’s the exciting video:

You really get the feeling that one day someone is going to die pushing the limits of food scoffing….

A California man has smashed the world record for hot-dog eating, gobbling up more than 59 franks in 12 minutes. Joey Chestnut surpassed the record of 53 3/4 hot dogs — held for six years by Takeru Kobayashi of Japan.

The 22-year-old set the record Saturday in Arizona in a regional qualifier for Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island, N.Y. Chestnut will now be able to face off against Kobayashi at the July 4 championship.”These guys’ numbers have just been going up at a tremendous clip,” said contest spokesman Ryan Nerz.

 “I always thought there was a limit — a limit to the human stomach and a limit to human willpower.

Chestnut admits he will have to strain his body to win at the New York title event. “I’m going to keep pushing my body and maybe I can beat him (Kobayashi),” Chestnut said

Judging by the way Kobayashi slams down those dogs, the strain is going to have to be severe.
