Randy Weaver of Little Rock, AR started racing in 1984 in the Bomber Class at I-30 Speedway because he'd been going to the races at I-30 Speedway since he was 10 years old. Then he helped a friend, Robbie Chism, with his car and that led Randy to start racing his own car at the age of 19. Randy raced the Bomber class for a few years before bumping up to the Street Stock Class where he continued to dominate.
It was during this time when the famous "Bionic Banana" was born. In 2002, Randy teamed up with Fox Racing Team and drove a Modified for Carol Fox "Grandma Fox." Partnered with the Fox Racing Team, Randy and Grandma Fox went on to win a remarkable 13 TRACK CHAMPIONSHIPS (Beebe Speedway & I-30 Speedway). At the end of the 2015 season Grandma Fox decided it was time to retire. Randy is still in action every weekend in the IMCA Modified Class at I-30 Speedway, putting on a show for the 100's of fans that have #WEAVERFEVER in their blood!
His most exciting racing moment was racing during a Modified Feature race at Batesville Motor Speedway to a sold out crowd at a Topless 100. Randy was racing hard with Jeff Taylor and Mike Bowers. He was neck to neck with Bowers, passed him on the last lap and won the Feature. It was awesome to win in front of such a large crowd and against such good competition. His home track is I-30 Speedway but he can also be found racing at Batesville Motor Speedway, Plumerville Super Speedway.
