Introducing Our Resident Home Inspector and Newest Car Racing Star

The various track events for the year are heating up because many top performers are joining the ranks. In the light of what will unfold in the coming days, it is expedient to use this platform to welcome a new driver, John Thomsen. He worked briefly at Long Island Home Inspectors | Advancedhomeinspectionsllc.com before setting up his own firm. He will be part of those who will be racing on the tracks this year and it will be a delight to watch him perform at Marysville. It must be stated that John has racked up many years experience through his participation at various racing events. He is a man of many parts who has continued to blaze the trail.

Performing a home inspection in Long Island, NYJohn is a home inspector by day and renowned race car driver by night. His story is quite captivating and it is a huge encouragement to anyone who needs to turn the tides of their life for good. John moved to Long Island, New York in the early 70’s without any hope of securing paid employment. He decided to follow his guts when he realized that there was an opening in the home inspection industry and he dived into it. His first job did not pay him so much but it helped him to cut his teeth as a home inspector. Home inspection was John’s career but racing is his life. He was able to achieve success in both fields.

After a few years of working with a home inspection business, he decided to start his own firm. Due to the integrity and expertise he had in his trade, he began to win big projects which kept increasing over the years. John became a well-known home inspector in Long Island and there are so many A-list projects that he has handled. Interestingly, he did not allow his quest to build a viable home inspection company from stopping his passion for racing. As much as he could, John squeezed out time each night to be fully engaged in the racing tracks. His commitment to both worlds showed the strength of his character.

As his home inspection business grew, John hired many competent hands to work with him. This gave him the opportunity to focus on his racing. One of the things that made him a renowned driver was when he defeated the national and regional record holders in a race. This made people pay attention to John Thomsen and he has been growing in strides ever since. His arrival at Marysville will increase the competition and sharpen the performance levels of other drivers in every range.

As a way of encouraging more home inspectors to follow his passion for Car racing, John has opened a blog on his home inspection company’s website. The blog talks about different issues that relate to Car racing and this has endeared him to so many people. He is one of the few people who have been able to combine business and pleasure in one swoop. John Thomsen has served as a model for many business owners who want to pursue their interests in Car racing. He is simply a colossus who is making a difference in a unique way.
