SAN JOSE (KCBS)– A San Jose man scarfed down 48 hot dogs in 10 minutes in Las Vegas this weekend to earn the title of male Nevada Hot Dog Eating Champion.

Matt Stonie’s next stop is the annual Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island.

Last year, Joey Chestnut — also of San Jose — held on to his national title by eating 61 franks and buns at the national contest – eight short of his record of 69 dogs and buns set in 2013.
