WOODBURN, OR (KPTV) -

A pumpkin weighing more than the average car shattered the record for the largest ever grown in Oregon at Bauman Farms Giant Pumpkin Weigh Off this past weekend.  It's also the third largest in the United States.

Steve Daletas of Pleasant Hill brought in the pumpkin that weighed in at a whopping 1,778.5 pounds. That's well over the previous record set last year, at 1,580 pounds.

Marketing Director Brian Bauman says there were 10 pumpkins weighing in at more than 1,400 pounds. The pumpkins were brought in from from Canada to California.

The giant pumpkins will be on display at Bauman Farms in Woodburn through Oct. 31.
