Growing up as the son of a 4-time Monster Jam® World FinalsSM Champion, Adam Anderson has embraced the success of his father, Grave Digger® creator Dennis Anderson, while making his own name as one of the sport’s elite competitors. Not expecting any favors because of his famous last name Adam learned the ropes of the sport as a mechanic before ever getting behind the wheel. That strategy paid off with Adam becoming an instant success as a driver, and he went on to establish the record as the youngest driver to ever win a Monster Jam World Finals Championship when he powered Taz to the 2008 World Freestyle Championship in Las Vegas at the age of 22. Then Adam joined maybe the sport’s most exclusive club in 2013 when he won the World Racing Championship at Monster Jam World Finals XIV behind the wheel of Grave Digger the Legend®, making Anderson only the 4th Monster Jam driver in history to have won both the racing and freestyle championship at the Monster Jam World Finals. Now solidly among the sport’s most successful and best known superstars, Adam has also welcomed the support of his father’s fans while cultivating his own fan base all over the world to become one of the sport’s most popular figures.
At the 2014 Monster Jam World Finals, Anderson yet again took home the world racing title making it his second consecutive title in an unforgettable race against Max-DSM and Tom Meents.
In 2016, Anderson will be following even closer in his father’s footsteps as he earns a spot in the driver’s seat of Grave Digger on the Monster Jam FS1 Championship Series tour.
