How's that for a sweet scroll? Meet the Triple Triple Burger.

Starting Monday, a behemoth burger returns to Wayback Burgers restaurants nationwide, challenging diners to a National Cheeseburger Day eating contest.  

The Connecticut-based burger franchise's annual Triple Triple Challenge, now in its 10th year, is named for the Triple Triple, that towering creation up there. What is it? Oh, just a nine-patty burger topped with nine slices of yellow American cheese, lettuce and tomato — bun and all.

Tasked with finishing the burger as quick as they can to defeat three-time reigning champ Molly Schuyler of California, competitors — who must be ages 16 or older — have a chance to win a $3,330 cash prize. (They also receive a free T-shirt while supplies last.) Schuyler's fastest time is 38.95 seconds, a record she set in 2014, and she plans to revisit her favorite location in Medford, Oregon, to defend her title.

Locals who want to get in on the Cheeseburger Day action that is the Triple Triple can visit either Wayback Burgers restaurant in Lithia or Plant City.
