RANDY SLAWSON - BOMBER FABRICATION
At the age of 12, Randy Slawson was first introduced to the off-road lifestyle by his uncle. Trips to the mountains for the sole purpose of exploration and camping became one of his favorite pastimes. As he grew older; and of driving age, his interest in off-road vehicles evolved into a passion. Upon moving from Oregon to Southern California, he discovered the desert and all of its beauty. He naturally migrated toward work in the off-road industry. After working several years for a sand car manufacturer, he became one of the lead instructors at the top metal fabrication school in southern California. His off-road passion took a turn toward the rocks, where he was heavily focused on trying to conquer the rock crawling "Hammer" trails of Johnson Valley. His skill set and equipment had evolved rapidly, so did the weekends' goals. His target shifted from being able to complete the trails, to seeing how fast he could complete the trails. This evolutionary process armed Randy with all the necessary skills and equipment to compete in the races held in Johnson Valley. Competing on a shoe string budget, he learned to respect the equipment, yet push it to its very limit. In 2010, Randy started Bomber Fabrication; a Southern California based metal fabrication business. His Bomber chassis are heavily respected in the rock racing community due to their simplicity to work on, their striking good looks and undeniable success in the desert. He has been named "King of the Hammers" twice, once in 2013 and again in 2015.
