Son-uva Digger debuted in 2011 and is owned by FELD Motorsports and is driven by Ryan Anderson, the second son to Dennis Anderson, as the name implies. The truck's body style is based off of Ryan's grandfather's car. Son-uva Digger was originally a mud truck, and was going to be Adam Anderson's new truck. However, Adam Anderson would go on to drive Taz and then Grave Digger the Legend in 2011. Ryan was supposed to debut Son-uva Digger in 2011, but, due to an injury, Ryan couldn't debut the truck until World Finals 12 in an encore performance. Ryan competed with the truck for the first time in Halifax, Nova Scotia in June of 2011, and it's first stadium in July of that year in Baltimore, MD. Ryan is known for his winning streaks, and he is one of the winning-est drivers on the Monster Jam circuit, although he had not won a World Championship until 2017 when he won the Racing Championship. Ryan has been invited to every World Finals since 2012.
