Heavy Hitter is one of the newest additions to Monster Jam®, having joined the circuit for the first time in 2012. Heavy Hitter is the creation of Derick Anson who drives it in Monster Jam competitions. Anson has an extensive and varied motorsports background that includes motocross and drag racing, as well as the thrill-a-minute Outlaw Figure-8 racing. As a driver who loves exciting motorsports, Anson decided to build Heavy Hitter to battle in Monster Jam. Anson says that his love of exciting forms of racing and his love of thrilling the fans every time out both convinced him to build Heavy Hitter. When not flying through arenas and stadiums behind the wheel of Heavy Hitter in Monster Jam competitions, Anson still competes in Outlaw Figue-8 races.
