How the Grave Digger Monster Truck Family Has Fun on a Day Off

Most people like to do something very different from their day job when they are looking to have fun on the weekends. But when you are a true gearhead, there is just no substitute for hooning it up in your vehicle of choice.

And that’s exactly the case for the Anderson clan. You may know Dennis Anderson, creator and driver of the world famous Grave Digger monster truck. He’s also gotten his sons into the family business: Adam drives the Grave Digger The Legend monster truck while Ryan pilots the Son-Uva Digger rig.

And while some might think travelling the country inflicting vehicular mayhem on old junker cars in front of thousands of screaming fans would be enough, the truth is the Anderson clan likes to take older 4x4s and go race them against their friends on days off.

That’s the setup for this video starring a GMC Blazer that Adam Anderson bought not too long ago for $1,500. Since buying the truck Adam and his brother have upgraded the wheels and tires, the suspension and the axles, but so far the engine had been left untouched. That was until Holley and NOS got involved. Holley helped Adam upgrade his Blazer with a new carburetor and complete nitrous system, and I had the opportunity to film it all–including a little mud bogging fun afterward. Special thanks go to both the Andersons and Holley for providing the access to do this.
