Monster Jam: What are your expectations for the 2012 Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam World Finals? 

Dennis Anderson: 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. 

Monster Jam: What are some of the most memorable Grave Digger moments in the last 30 years? 

Dennis Anderson: 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 World Finals?

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.

Monster Jam: In your eyes over the last 30 years how has the sport of Monster Jam changed? 

Dennis Anderson: 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.
