Monster Jam Interviews Dennis Anderson
By Monster Jam Media
What are your expectations for the 2012
Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam World Finals?
I go into every Monster Jam World Finals
with the mentality to bring home the trophy, but I will be happy if one of us Andersons
brought home the hardware! We are also expecting the biggest and baddest encore
ever in the history of Monster Jam.
What are some of the most memorable Grave
Digger moments in the last 30 years?
All of my Monster Jam World Finals wins, Adam
Anderson taking over my seat in Grave Digger when I was injured, Adam coming
back to the Grave Digger team and driving The Legend and last but not least
Ryan Anderson introducing Son-uva Digger with his awesome back flip at the 2011
Monster Jam World Finals.
Monster Jam: What is so special about the Monster Jam
Dennis Anderson: There is something there for every
Monster Jam fan. The Monster Jam World Finals has one of the biggest pit
parties that I have ever been a part of and if you can even believe it, Monster
Jam fans that Double Down get a whole lot more! They get the chance to see all
24 monster trucks qualify on Friday night, access to over 70 monster trucks in
the Party in the Pits, special Double Down merchandise and of course, great tickets
to the big show on Saturday night! It’s like the ultimate fan experience with
24 of the world’s best monster trucks in one stadium. I didn’t think
Double Down could possibly get any bigger, but Monster Jam surprised us all
with an added bonus this year. The Young Guns Shootout - a true battle of up
and coming superstars to the sport, will go head to head in an exclusive Racing
battle during the Friday night Double Down! The Young Guns Shootout will
feature eight drivers who have two years or less experience driving in the
Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam, and will make for an exciting addition to an
already eventful night for sure. The 2012 Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam
World Finals presented by NGK spark plugs will be the best Monster Jam World Finals
you will ever see so make sure you get your tickets today because I know you
don’t want to miss me tearing up the competition.
In your eyes over the last 30 years how
has the sport of Monster Jam changed?
Monster Jam is very competitive. Monster trucks have become more durable and
every driver has top notch equipment.
Every team runs their equipment so hard and the obstacles and jumps keep
getting bigger and bigger. The biggest
change for me at least is that the new generations of drivers are just running
harder and harder and keep raising the bar which ultimately makes Monster Jam
so much better for the fans.
