If you’re a La Vernia native, you likely know of Chet and F Bomb Diesel Performance. For fifteen years, Chet has built his business from the ground up and now runs the successful 5-man shop. Many people may know Chet as the dedicated owner/operator of the small town business, however, Chet has a long history with performance and vehicles of all types.
As a child, Chet began quad and motocross racing and did so into his twenties. He traveled to multiple states and won many 1st place finishes and sponsorships, including Yamaha of San Antonio. He has had many opportunities to compete nationally, and even participated in the San Antonio Monster Jam as a motocross entertainer. He also participated in jet ski racing and the United States Autosound Competition, even placing 1st in the nation and winning 2nd place worldwide within his division in the 1997 International Autosound Competition.
Though he has had many wins in his lifetime, he deems his biggest accomplishment as providing excellent customer service to the La Vernia community through F Bomb Diesel Performance. He prides himself on the customer relationship he holds with everyone who walks through the shop doors, and strives to make each and every customer a lifelong friend.
When Chet isn’t hard at work, he is spending time with his six children and his beautiful wife, Amanda. They enjoy going to church together on Sundays and having good quality family time whenever possible.
