    I'd love to hear some of the drivers of Diggers 3 and 8 in the mid '90s, since many of them are unidentifiable in any videos I've seen of those trucks. Seems like Dennis was going through a lot of drivers in those years.

    Add Alex Blackwell and Dustin Brown to that list....Alex filled in at some point, and Dustin did a media car crush in Miami this year. Ricky Ownley, Paul Cohen (drove #20 in Rosemont, IL 2009), Mike Wales

    Didn't Dennis say that Eldon Depew was a fill in driver one time on the digger domination video? He said he was snowed in and his flight was canceled or something along those lines?

    Jack Koberna did some shows driving Grave Digger #5 (the leafer that's now Mr. Big) in the early 1990s, I think. I've also heard of another driver named Ricky Akers doing some shows in Grave Digger in the early 1990s.

    I think Ronnie Cochran also drove Grave Digger for a short while, before going to Radical Rescue. I know he did some media shots driving the truck in Toronto, in 2002.

    Debra Micelli (Madusa) drove Grave Digger #12 in some shots that were aired at the start of the 2000 Monster Jam season on TNN.

    Rick Akers drove the second ride truck I believe at some point.

    Les Anderson Drove #1 in 89 when Dennis was driving #2 according to the TNT special on Digger.
