Grave Digger Monster Truck News

Grave Digger (often referred to as simply Digger) is the name of a team of monster trucks currently racing in the USHRA Monster Jam series. Several Grave Diggers are driven by different drivers to make appearances at more events, but their flagship driver is creator Dennis Anderson. Grave Digger is considered to be one of the most influential monster trucks of all time.

Grave Digger Drivers

Dennis Anderson
Back in 1981, in an old garage in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, Dennis Anderson created a monster. Originally, Anderson pieced together his machine from old parts of discarded vehicles.

Pablo Huffaker
Pablo knows Monster Trucks! And as fate would have it, after 11 years in the monster mainstream, he teamed up with Dennis Anderson in 1993. Together, they are responsible for much of the Grave Digger® truck evolution.

Charlie Pauken
Charlie was thrilled with the opportunity set before him, joining the Digger team. Charlie’s driving style confirmed that he was the perfect candidate to “do the Digger thing”, as he calls it.

There have been a total of 24 Grave Digger monster trucks built.
Grave Digger 1 – Original truck. The truck has been taken apart and sits in the back of the shop. (Recently made an appearance at World Finals 8 (2007)
