I have been fascinated by RoadRash artwork all my life , but I seem to not understand it and how to go about it
How are they able to make such posterized characters! Why this kind of artwork stopped?

The style is a very old one - known as Caricature
The essence is to exaggerate features whilst still maintaining recognition of the character being caricatured.
It is normally done as a drawing process rather than computer-generated, but it can be faked using something like Liquify in Photoshop.
The best caricatures take a known figure & exaggerate parts that are perceived as deviating from the norm. Otherwise, simply forcing the perspective, as in your second example, is relatively easy & doesn't require the person to be already recognisable.
