If Nick Wehry does not win today’s qualifier, he will be the first person to do 33+ hot dogs in a circuit and not make the finals. Previous competitors who hit that mark either won a subsequent qualifier or received the wild card. The previous high for not making the finals was Pat “from Moonachie” Philbin’s 32 in 2009.
