The thundering sound of monster trucks will fill the air in Tampa Saturday night. The Monster Jam will feature some of the biggest names in monster trucks including one of the youngest. Twenty three year old Ryan Anderson is the son of Dennis Anderson of Grave Digger. He will be driving a Jeep Willys panel truck named Son-Uva Digger.

"I was born into and I really don't know anything different it's 100 percent my life... is monster trucks monster jam and I love it. I have no idea what else I would do besides this right here."

Some of the trucks that are here include Iron Man, Wolverine, and the new truck named Zombie.

The biggest star of the show is Dennis Anderson and Grave Digger. Anderson says after thirty years he still gets nervous when performing...and not because of the danger involved.

"I'm worried about disappointing my fans with Grave Digger and not getting the job done if it turns over too early or breaks too early. So there is pressure but let me tell you right now at the same time on the other side of the coin when that crowd is roaring and I know that I've done good the payoff is wonderful."

The fans will also get to see Tom Meents in Max D. Meents is celebrating ten years of driving Maximum Destruction and will attempt a back flip in his truck during the show.

"It's crazy, I mean you have ten thousand pounds on top of your head...you got to make it all the way around. If we do we don't we're attempting it for sure if we make it it's going to be awesome if we don't it will be cool too."
