The competition at the Second Annual New Jersey Truck Pull, hosted by Crown Relocations, was almost as hot as the temperature!
Crown Relocations had two teams competing for this year's coveted Truck Pull Championship. There was some speculation among the crowd about whether the teams had been sneaking into the lot after hours to practice truck pulling techniques, because both squads showed up ready to compete for office bragging rights and trophy case glory. Bob Leotti's team blazed out of the gate with a blistering 0:38 run which was the result of the team's coordinated backwards pull motion into a simultaneous full-team turn to a frontwards run after the truck started to pick up momentum. With a full 18-second lead over the next closest team, beating Bob's team seemed insurmountable. The second Crown team, however, having learned from Bob's bunch, adjusted their approach and managed to complete their second run in just 0:36 to take home the win! Time will tell if any of them will mysteriously get assigned to the graveyard shift for beating the boss.
All differences were set aside, though, as members from both of Crown's team came together to help the Move For Hunger team complete their second run. Depleted from pulling the truck for 1:22 during their first run and then being down a team member on their second attempt, the Move For Hunger team was unable to get the truck to budge until helping hands from Crown came out on the course to get them going.
If nothing else, this was a physical reminder of the established tradition of Crown Relocations being the extra muscle that Move For Hunger has counted on over the past 10 years. When all was said and done, Crown Relocations had raised $20,900 to support our hunger relief and food rescue programs, which is nearly 2x the total from last year
