Since we had our brains on monster trucks briefly today already, we figured that a poll question settling an age old debate was in order. Arguably, the two most famous monster trucks in the world are Bob Chandler’s Bigfoot and Dennis Anderson’s Grave Digger. Chandler was one of the guys who literally invented the crowd pleasing machines and Anderson broke new ground on the business end by selling his brand to (then) Clear Channel Communications for them to use as the cornerstone of their “Monster Jam” series, which Bigfoot refuses to participate in.
Being that the trucks are no longer competing head to head, this is more a question of fan loyalty and perhaps one that splits down the lines of age. Kids who attending the Monster Jam events coast to coast see Anderson or one of the gaggle of drivers that pilot the trucks at multiple simultaneous events may not even know what the Bigfoot truck is, while older monster truck fans may remember all the movie and television appearances made by ‘Foot and its racing dominance back in the day.
Simple question here, which monster truck is the greatest of all time? Grave Digger or Bigfoot?
