NEW YORK (1010 WINS/AP) -- Joey "Jaws" Chestnut and Miki Sudo remain undefeated.

Chestnut took home the Mustard Belt for the 11th year in a row, downing 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes.

The renowned competitive eater from San Jose, California, takes home the coveted Mustard Belt and surpassed the previous mark of 72 dogs and buns he downed last year. 

Earlier today, Miki Sudo ended up downing 37 hots dogs to win her fifth straight title in the women’s competition.

The Las Vegas competitor fell short of the 41 hot dogs she consumed last year but still beat out second-place finisher Michelle Lesco, of Tucson, Arizona. Lesco chowed down 28 wieners and buns.

Thousands of attendees braved 83-degree temperatures and a heat index of 91 degrees to witness the annual July Fourth competition on the Coney Island boardwalk.

Sudo and Chestnut were fan favorites, drawing out big cheers from the crowds during their performances.
