The first time Steve Sims witnessed a "Monster Truck" event, he knew it was something he wanted to do.
Sims, of Virginia Beach, Va., managed to become a part of the big rig experience through bartering.
He operates a business, Custom Stone Company, in Virginia, which also does countertop installation.
Sims got driver Dennis Anderson to bring his big-wheeled vehicle, "Grave Digger," to his son's birthday party. In return, Anderson wanted new counter tops.
