6/19/2010 Munchin Mike Longo captures Little Jimmy’s National Italian Ice Eating Championship at Raceway Park NJ

Little Jimmy’s National Italian Ice Eating Championship Event Photos

Amongst the roar of super hyped engines, Monster Trucks and the typical sounds that accompany the raceway track experience, Munchin Mike Longo captured his second National Eating Championship in two weeks. King George Van Laar, the crafty veteran who lost by a thimble of Italian Ice, rarely gets beat when it comes down to close finish.  However, may have underestimated the drive, focus and mental soundness that characterizes US Marine. Munchin Mike Longo, who showed that he is impervious to psychological warfare and that he is absolutely focused and driven when he conducts his mission of becoming one of Americas best Picnic Style Food Warriors. In third place was Ian The Invader Hickman, who was the pre-race favorite, seemed to struggle with his technique and approach, and appeared distracted and slightly confused at times. King George Van Laar one of the great Old School Food Warriors, must be given credit for his spirited come back attempt. The Monarch of Munch went into the final Championship Round trailing Longo by 1.25 Italian Ices and nearly closed the gap at the end.  Although The King was disappointed he did not bring the National Ice Eating title to his beloved state of New Jersey, he must still be given the royal treatment and credit for his Herculean effort in the Championship two minute speed round.
