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. There are several Grave Diggers being driven by different drivers to allow them 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.
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 knows Monster Trucks! And as fate would have it, afer 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 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.
