"Since the day I was born, my father has been training me to drive a monster truck."
Growing up watching his father build a legendary career and the most popular truck in Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam history, then seeing his older brother Adam enter the sport and achieve great success at a young age, it’s no surprise that Ryan Anderson was chomping at the bit to become a driver himself. Anderson was a natural at the sport of monster truck driving as soon as he began to drive Monster Mutt in 2010, rocking houses full of applause across the country and winning the coveted Rookie of the Year Award for that season. A true talent behind the wheel, Anderson won major events in his first year in the sport, embarking on a career in which “the sky’s the limit” for his future endeavors.
As his brother Adam had achieved, Ryan has embraced the millions of fans that his famous father, Digger’s Dennis Anderson, has brought to the sport while also cultivating his own fan base. Ryan continues to carry forward the Anderson legacy as he helps take the sport to even greater heights.
Today, Ryan is very active in Monster Jam, mud racing, and various other race oriented sports. "I think as I grow and mature in this sport, you will see me develop into one of the most diverse driver's in the motor sports world. I am looking forward to developing in new areas, and improving in the ones I already excel in."
