Part of your Independence Day plans may include sitting down to watch the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest from Coney Island, New York.

Joey Chestnut, in a nauseating and historic Fourth of July performance, inhaled a staggering 72 hot dogs over 10 minutes to shatter his own world record. He beat Carmen Cincotti (sihn-CAH'-tee), who ate 60. He defended his belt previous year by finishing 70 hotdogs in just 10 minutes.

Loyal fans donned hot dog hats as they waited to see who could stomach the pressure and who would falter. There was a brief scuffle but the group was taken into custody.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals had members giving away free vegan hot dogs outside the event, but a spokeswoman says the people arrested inside weren't with PETA. The odds heavily favor Joey Chestnut to win the Men's Championship at -350.

The women's division - where Miki Sudo will try to defend her title as champion - will begin at 11 a.m., while the men's will start at 12:30 in the afternoon.

Miki Sudo chowed down a personal-best 41 hot dogs to win her fourth straight women's title.

Michelle Lesco came in second place this year with 32 hot dogs and buns, and Thomas came in third with 31 hot dogs and buns. Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas holds the women's record at 45 franks.

The latest edition of the contest will arrive on Tuesday from Coney Island in the Brooklyn, New York, area. Chestnut defeated Matt "The Megatoad" Stonie in 2016 to reclaim his title. Whether it is good marketing or just a odd, American obsession with hot dogs, it is a must-watch event if you have never seen it for yourself. The fiels means anyone else winning outside of Chestnut or Stonie.

"I'm really happy I got this win", Chestnut said, gripping the Mustard Belt, "I slowed down way more more than I wanted to, I definitely have room for more".

10th! Despite being the oldest competitor in the field he finished faster than people much, much younger than him.
