Punkin Chunkin 2013

World Premieres Thanksgiving Night, Thursday, November 28 at 8 PM ET/PT

Now in its sixth year on Science Channel, this signature event has become a Thanksgiving tradition, served up beside turkey, stuffing, football and (of course) pumpkin pie.  Fall's annual event features more than 100 athletes of engineering vying for championship glory in a Delaware cornfield. Watch as pumpkins go the distance in a high-stakes contest of unbelievable engineering and autumnal absurdity in PUNKIN CHUNKIN on Thanksgiving nightThursday, November 28 at 8:00 PM (ET/PT) only on Science Channel. 

PUNKIN CHUNKIN is an epic gathering of unconventional engineers - this year taking place from November 1-3- where teams from across America descend upon on a Delaware farm to see whose homemade contraptions can propel a pumpkin the farthest.

Science Channel is once again capturing all of the high-flying PUNKIN CHUNKIN action with MYTHBUSTERS Kari Byron, Grant Imahara, and Tory Belleci returning as hosts, taking viewers behind the firing line to chronicle on all of the excitement and antics of Punkin Chunkin teams. Will Young Glory III remain champions in the coveted air cannon division or will there be a new powerhouse? With titles on the line in every division, teams are expected to pull out all the stops in hopes of achieving the Punkin Chunkin glory, and will strain to attain the holy grail of pumpkin propulsion: launching a pumpkin more than one mile.
