1538 pound pumpkin

Thad Starr of Oregon celebrates winning the biggest pumpkin award at the Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off in Half Moon Bay, CA yesterday. What I want to know is how the heck did he safely truck it all those miles. He won $6 per pound or $9,168 and says someday someone will grow a 2,000 pounder and it might as well be him.
