World Record Bacon Eating Set at Daytona 500
One event that took place at this past weekend’s Daytona 500 that didn’t get a lot of publicity was a bacon eating contest. It too place before the race started and new world record was set.
Matt ‘Megatoad’ Stonie ate 182 slices of bacon in just 5 minutes to win the bacon eating championship and set a new world record. That’s six pounds of bacon in five minutes. He considers himself a ‘semi-professional' eater but is ranked #2 in the world behind Joey Chestnut.
During the 2014 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, Stonie came in second to Joey ‘The Jaws’ Chestnut losing by of 5 hot dogs, 61 to 56.
