Dennis Anderson was, is, and always will be a BangShift hero of the highest order. The guy has done everything there is to do in a monster truck about fifty times and his King Sling mud truck is a toy he busts out to release some steam and have fun. That’s exactly what he was doing while putting on an exhibition for the fans at the Thunder Valley Mudplex in South Carolina. You’ll see him catch monster air, get the truck all kinds of sideways, launch through the mud pit and you’ll also see Anderson make an awesome save when the truck appeared to be way far gone and heading for a roll over. All of that monster truck experience helped him in that moment!
What may be the coolest part of the video comes at the end when Anderson addresses the crowd. Both Chad and I have met the guy and chatted with him some. He’s a very sincere guy and outside of maybe Bob Chandler, Anderson has made more money with monster trucks than virtually any human being alive. He takes the King Sling truck out for kicks. We saw that thing at SEMA a couple years ago and it is a really gnarly piece, for sure. Anyway, in the course of addressing the crowd you’ll see Anderson stop a time or two to maintain his composure. He thanks the people for, “every nut and bolt on that truck and every shingle on his roof.” That’s pretty damned cool.
Anyway, Dennis Anderson is a monster truck legend and the dude is a decent human being. That’s a heck of a combo in our book.
