The 4th of July just wouldn't be complete without Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, which goes down every Independence Day on Coney Island in New York. This July 4th, the champion Joey Chestnut set a new world record, downing 72 dogs in 10 minutes. He also secured his 10th championship at Nathan's.
