    A play on the triumph and losses in performance and life.  The Talent Tank podcast will navigate the inner workings of lifestyle, lives, family, teams, careers, programs, and technology in and around the offroad motorsports industry.  What breeds success with your Talent Tank on full, failures when its on empty.  From the journey to the Starting Line to take that Green Flag, on to exploring trials and tribulations on and off the track in pursuit of victorious achievement and the Checkered Flag.

    The other, and lesser known half of the passionate duo who pioneered the King of the Hammers and ULTRA4 Racing franchise, Jeff Knoll @poppa_jefe joins us on The Talent Tank on this momentous milestone Episode 50 and Spring 2021 Season Finale.  Thought provocateur, entrepreneur, always forward thinker, and Flaming Hot Cheeto hater.  Join in on this discussion on how idea inception, perception play their roles in our daily critical thinking. What about walking away from everything he loved in off-road racing?  There's actually life after it!  Re-invention, and what agility mean to successes in careers, and life.   Reflection and comparisons of style and circumstance give way to an amazing discussion on sponsors, courting sponsorships, and golden nuggets for those of you chasing them.

    EP 49 Randy Slawson

    A play on the triumph and losses in performance and life.  The Talent Tank podcast will navigate the inner workings of lifestyle, lives, family, teams, careers, programs, and technology in and around the offroad motorsports industry.  What breeds success with your Talent Tank on full, failures when its on empty.  From the journey to the Starting Line to take that Green Flag, on to exploring trials and tribulations on and off the track in pursuit of victorious achievement and the Checkered Flag.

    You can't call yourself "the premier podcast for ULTRA4 & Off-Road Racing" without having on the current and three time King, Randy Slawson @bomberfabrication on your show.  Randy the driver of the ULTRA4 Racing 4448 & 4848 and sole proprietor of Bomber Fabrication.  With a legacy of a fast, simple, no non-sense stable of his own cars, and a slew of those he's built of designed for others that complete all all levels of the offroad circuits.  He gives us the low down on what makes him tick, why he believes he's had the success he's had, and most importantly.  He's a damn nice guy despite his shyness, and lifelong RBF prognosis. 
    We talk The Fab School, dirtbikes, being married to better drivers, working with junk, and never giving up on this episode of The Talent Tank .

    A play on the triumph and losses in performance and life.  The Talent Tank podcast will navigate the inner workings of lifestyle, lives, family, teams, careers, programs, and technology in and around the offroad motorsports industry.  What breeds success with your Talent Tank on full, failures when its on empty.  From the journey to the Starting Line to take that Green Flag, on to exploring trials and tribulations on and off the track in pursuit of victorious achievement and the Checkered Flag.

    When you think of someone that marches to the beat of their own drum, that doesn't conform to a single norm, a vagabond, a nomad, an explorer on only a quest that they can complete.  I hope you picture Kyle Seggelin @iwannagofast77  from this moment forward.  Kyle is the driver of the #4654, the first EV vehicle in rock sports and the first to complete a King of the Hammers course.  Kyle and I first crossed paths at the 2021 King of the Hammers at a little known side-show called @ultra3_racing a good time with friends, 3-wheelers and at Tuesday night in the desert.  Where its gone since then, well, you'll have to listen.  But be prepared to find yourself seeking out used Toyota RV's and charting continent crossing adventures.   From Boston, to California, to Cabo and back.  From working for ULTRA4 Racing, to the assembly line at Tesla @teslamotors.  Investing in yourself, and how this BeanTowner worked his way into the Tesla R&D shop.  His Chinese is so good, we didn't even speak it on this episode of The Talent Tank.

    After the Checkered Flag-
    EV West @evwestdotcom, there's a lot out there about these guys, but at the same time nothing out there about these guys. 
    They where the first to race an EV in Mexico at the 2013 NORRA 1000, and they recently had a landspeed car go nearly 250mph at Bonneville.  They even have a retrofit to make anything that has Chevrolet SBC or LS motor mounts a conversion candidate for their Tesla crate motor.

Love love love it

One of my favorite podcasts. The stories outside of just racing and the INFLECTION points of people’s off-road careers are amazing.
