Busch Stadium a Qualifying Site for Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in N.Y.
Hot dog eaters, your chance has arrived! Busch Stadium will be the site of a qualifying round for the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island, New York this summer.
The hot dog eating contest will be held in St. Louis before the Cardinals play Atlanta on Saturday afternoon, May 17. According to KTVI-TV, the top male and female finishers will earn a spot in the national finals in New York on the Fourth of July.
The contest involves who can eat the most hot dogs and buns in ten minutes time. Joey Chestnut set the world record last year eating 69 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes. Here’s your chance to give Mr. Chestnut a run for his money or Pepto Bismol.
