The Pacific Northwest was an area that yearned for a Nathan's qualifier. They finally got their wish on September 4th, 2017.

It was housed within the Bite of Oregon food festival - a four day event celebrating all things Oregonian cuisine while raising money for the Special Olympics.

A noble cause that is a perfect match for the noble performances from, Erik "The Red" Denmark (Ranked #15) & the "Unstoppable B.A.B." Sarah Reinecke (Ranked #36) as they take their place at the table on July 4th.

During this Spotlight, Erik talks about his 28 HDB performance & how it stacks up against his long history of qualifiers. Sarah goes over her personal best of 17 HDB in Oregon and how she views herself against her other female competitors. All this plus the old school vs. new school of eating, what the purpose of competitive eating REALLY is, and much more!
