"After meeting a previous record holder at a giant pumpkin seminar I decided that I wanted to try to break the record!"
Duane spent more than 8 years growing pumpkins and learning how to grow them in the hot Nebraska climate. After he was finally able to grow one this year, he knew he "would test its buoyancy in a pool".
