All aboard the Boomstick Express

The Rangers have been hosting weekly Boomstick eating contests, in which competitors face off to see who can eat a two-foot-long hot dog the fastest.

On Monday, the competition reached a whole new level.

Behold the Boomstick Express, a motorized replica of the dog complete with chili, cheese, onions and jalapenos.

Derrick Lockridge, who ate the giant hot dog in a record 3:44 on Monday, took part in the Boomstick Express' inaugural ride as a reward for his gastronomic greatness.

Eat your heart out, Kobayashi.
