Interesting Chunkin Fact! Chunk Norris became the World Champion record holder in the catapult competition of 3,508 feet at our 2016 competition. To accomplish this feat, Chunk Norris utilizes a ½ mile of latex tubing to generate 50,000 – 75,000 ft-lbs of torque to send the pumpkin accelerating close to 450 mph to achieve world record distances. To put this in perspective, a full-size pickup truck has about 500-750 ft-lbs of torque.
