The first qualifier of the 2014-15 Nathan’s qualfier has started at Michigan International Speedway . Richard Petty is present. The 2014-15 Nathan’s circuit will start at Brooklyn, MI and finish in Brooklyn, NY.

I think 10 am eastern is the earliest starting time for a North American IFOCE/MLE contest (not counting the promotional contests on local TV).

The MLE facebook announces that "Buffalo" Jim Reeves became the first person to compete in the same contest ten years in a row at the Buffalo Wing Festival earlier this month and that Crazy Legs Conti will also reach that mark in Thursday's cannoli eating contest. This claim must apply to IFOCE contests only; Lester Tucker has won a quail egg eating contest in Texas for 16 years in a row.
