My two sons and I had the opportunity to visit the Bloomquist Races Cars shop on Thursday afternoon. During our two hours there, I was able to get a few pictures. Here they are:

My boys and I had a great time. Any dirt racing fan would enjoy getting to see it so I hope these pictures provide a peek into their world. The write up and recording of the interview I conducted with Scott will be posted soon.
