Come every January or February, the USHRA comes to the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY with 8 Monster Trucks.  This year was no different, but there was a special treat this year.  In the middle of his busy SpeedTV tapings at larger venues, Dennis Anderson would be there for the 3-show weekend driving the new for 2004 Grave Digger 19.  Along with Anderson were 7 other Monster Trucks:

A bird's eye view of the Pit Party as it comes to and end.



As the Pit Party came to a close, seats begun to fill up and less and less people were seen on the floor.  Finally only the Monsters were left and opening ceremonies would begin shortly, with the First Round of Racing to follow that.



A unique opening though recently has been the Ford Photo Moment, and tonight it would be shared by Grave Digger and Monster Mutt.

Although it was announced that Gun Slinger team truck Obsession would be driven by a different driver, but in actuality Scott Hartsock would be pulling double duty tonight driving both Gun Slinger and Obsession.
