Not Just Chassis’…We Do Full Metal Manufacturing

Race Crafters Manufacturing was developed in 2012 by Jake and Linda Hodges.  With over a decade of custom automotive engineering and off-road racing fabrication, Race Crafters has become a vital component of winning off-road race teams. Jake has been involved with race cars from a very young age, and for the past two decades has grown a passion for TIG welding. It was a natural fit for him to combine these two passions, but now with his vast knowledge and experience with metal the business has grown to a full Metal Manufacturing shop doing work in multiple industries.


Race Crafters has developed a reputation in the fabrication industry as an innovator and industry leader.  The company is built on the foundation of integrity and pride, from every part we build, to how we treat customers and how we treat each other in the shop. We believe that surrounding yourselves with good quality personnel and leading by example, we can accomplish nearly any task.


Our new 6000 square foot facility is located in Oxnard, California and has all the heavy duty equipment for your needs. We specifically chose this location for manufacturing because we have nearly every vendor for our industry within a couple square miles, allowing nearly zero downtime which for our customer… equates to competitive pricing!
