Tim Tolton finishes sixth at Capital City

OTTAWA - This week we travelled to Capital City Speedway in Ottawa Ontario. This Trip would not have been possible without the dedication of our crew and our Sponsors Thank you to Sam and Nanci of NEW GENERATION WOOD PRODUCTS INC , for their faith in us, Amsoil, Vinnies Mr.fix it, Twin City Auto parts, Franks Pioneer Transmission, Engines From Hal.
We left for Capital City after Tim raced Full Throttle Motor Speedway we drove through the night and arrived in Ottawa around 6:30 am. When we got in the pits and unloaded the car they started right away with all the checks and set up of the car.
The first practice would result in Tim feeling something wrong with the rear-end of the car he cam into the pits and the crew began to try and diagnose the problem. The gears had to come out and thank to another team who loaned us their spare gears we were able to put them in and race. Tim was about the 6th car to go out and do his qualifying lap, he did a 19.25 unfortunately this would only be good enough for a 12 starting spot. Considering the lack of sleep and the ill handling car we were happy with the result.
The cars lined up in the front stretch for the start of what was going to be a fast pace race. The green flag was out and we were off , in the first lap Tim would jump up into the 8th spot but he was not happy with the car the chatter between him and his crew would bring him in to the pits on the first caution flag for a minor adjustment to the track bar, when Tim went back out the car was a bit better, but the car was still not one hundred percent. The green flew this time Tim would find himself in the last spot on the track so he knew he had his work cut out for him this adjustment did not help in any way. Having a faster car then the ones in front of him he had to pass and conserve the tires and breaks on the car.
He pulled to the highline of the track and took a chance as he was passing one of the cars he was squeezed high and just about hit the tires at pit lane head on and had to avoid a spinning car. This would allow them to bring the New Generation Monte Carlo back into the pits for yet another small adjustment to the track bar but with the breaks fading Tim was not able to give the car all it had going into the corner he went in a little to hard and he ended up spinning out this would put Tim back in the last spot so they figured a good time for another adjustment with the laps winding down and not much the crew could do with such short time to adjust it was up to Tim To do what he does best With 20 laps to go Tim was told now is go time so with what he had Tim would bring the Team a 6th place finish.

Tim Tolton finishes sixth and third in Mini Stock features at Full Throttle Motor Speedway

By: Ashley McCubbin - On Friday night, Tim Tolton would take his first ĎMini Stockí laps of the 2014 season behind the wheel of his No. 35 Nissan at Full Throttle Motor Speedway. The night turned out successful, as Tolton finished sixth and third in the pair of features.
Tolton kicked off the night by starting 11th in the first 20-lap feature, and steadily made his way through the field, running seventh by the halfway. In the second half of the feature, Tolton would pass Tessa Cremasco for sixth and held down the spot the rest of the way for a solid finish.
Tolton would start pole for the second feature, though quickly fell back to second on the start as he was passed by Kevin Bridge. Tolton then held down the second spot all the way till lap four when he was passed by eventual feature winner Cory Young. From then on, Tolton battled and raced hard, holding down the third spot all the way to the checkered.

What's to come in 2014 for Black Magic Racing?

Well with the racing season coming Tim and I would like to take this time to give you all an update on what we have been working on over the winter. We are pleased to welcome all the team members back for another year:
Ken Brown (car chief),
Steve Greguol (spotter and crew)
Harold Norry (engine builder and crew)
Bobby Tolton (crew, spotter, and back up driver)
Cec Tolton (crew)
Julie Brown (crew and public relations)
Caitie Fitzpatrick (crew and team artist)
Ashley Mcubbin (web designer and public relations)
Scott Marvin (crew)
Ryan Marvin (crew)

We'd also like to welcome Tim Glassford this year as our crew chief. He has been helping us for the past couple of years from afar, this year however we are pleased to have him on the team full time! Welcome aboard Tim, we look forward to learning a lot with you.

Another exciting addition to the team for this season is Billy Zardo, who will be driving the Outlaw modified for Tim when we have overlapping schedules between the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup class and the Outlaw Modified Series.

Along with the crew, we are welcoming back for another season and are very pleased to announce New Generations Wood products has returned as our primary sponsor. Thank you Sam and Nansi we look forward to another season with you by our side. Also returning for this season is Twin City Automotive, Engines from Hal www.enginesfromhal.com, Varney Speedway Motorplex www.varneyspeedwaymotorplex.com as well as Black Magic signs and graphics www.blackmagic-racing.com/, and Franks Pioneer Transmission in Guelph www.pioneertransmission.com. We are always welcoming new partners so please contact us for more information if interested.

Every year Tim picks a charity that we do fundraising for. Last year we chose to help Kayla Baker who was a 15 year old girl in need of a double lung transplant. During her wait for these lungs she touched many peopleís lives and brought awareness to the importance of organ donations and how they can save the life of someone you love. Unfortunately Kayla lost the battle and passed away on January first of this year. Tim still felt a connection to this very worthy cause and has chose to support the "Runalung Campaign" www.RunaLung.ca that Kayla started while she was in sick kidís hospital. Hopefully we can have another successful go at raising money for a worthwhile cause.

Tim has also decided that with some nights between the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup car and the Outlaw Modified he would bring the mini stock out and run a few races with it as well he will be running a few endurance races. Tim's main focus this year will be the New generation Monte Carlo and the Outlaw Modified owned by Brian Dean. We will be traveling to several different tracks with all four cars including; Sauble Speedway, Sunset International Speedway, Delaware Speedway, Flamboro Speedway, Peterborough Speedway, Kawartha Speedway and recently added to the roster this season is Capital City Speedway in Ottawa.

We are looking forward to a very exciting season with a great crew and great partners. From all of us here at Black Magic Racing we'd like to thank you for being fans of the sport, and we look forward to seeing you at the track!

2014 Tentative Schedule

The 2014 Tentative Schedule is posted for your viewing pleasure. Everything will depend on sponsorship and weather, of course

The New Generations Wood Products Car dodges way to top five finish

Tim and his crew battled through an abundance of problems at Flamboro Speedway on August 24th, to finish with a seasons best top five finish.
The day started out with another string of bad luck, as Tim cut down a right front tire in practice and started to gouge the replacement as well in the second session. The team determined a long sway bar bolt was the culprit and quickly began to get to work finding a replacement. The generosity of Doug Cathcart driver and owner of the 48 car was able to provide one, and once the problem was resolved the team guessed on the cars setup as the handling issue wasnít able to be addressed due to the tire problems. Qualifying near the back of the pack, the team made another few adjustments and was ready to rumble. The green flag dropped and before one lap would be completed, the caution came out as cars began to spin all around Tim. The first restart would not be as lucky, once again before a lap was completed a wreck on the back stretch would collect the front right side of New Generation Monte Carlo.
Tim wheeled the car to the pits and the crew quickly got to work pulling fiberglass out of the rim, and re-adjusting the sway bar once again. Fortunately due to a lengthy track clean up Tim and his team would keep the car on the lead lap. The race would get going again and Tim starting working his way to the sixth position, just after being lapped by an extremely dominant 60 car of Jake Ott on pace to lap the entire field in just 30 laps, the caution flag waved as a car spun. Tim received the lucky dog free pass and was back on the lead lap. On the ensuing restart Tim got to work and managed his way to the fourth position just before another caution. Dropping a spot on the final restart Tim settled in for a fifth place finish as his brakes were too hot to challenge for the position, tech lane also presented another problem for the New Generation crew, as the rear differential seized while waiting to be inspected.
After a long day of overcoming several obstacles the team was excited to have a top five finish, and hopes to repeat the on track success at Flamboro once again in a couple of weeks on Saturday October 5th. The team would also like to once again thank Doug Cathcart for his generosity, without it their day would have been done.

Tim Tolton wins Outlaw Modified Feature

Well Tim has worked really hard to get the Outlaw modified ready and all the bugs worked out he brought the phoenix out with hopes that with the adjustments he made the car would get a bit better. Tim was lined up in 5 position and was ready to go he was able to get passed the 4 car and fall into the third spot. The two lead cars had a bit more power then Tim and he finished in the third spot. With the way this car had been running Tim was very happy with that but he knew the car had more .
Again he got thinking and made a few changes. When he lined up for the second heat again he was in the 5 place spot he got going and again he passed the 4 place car and again he settled in the 3rd place position and this time was stayed right with them.
The feature was lined up Tim Found himself in the last starting spot so he had his work cut out for him . After they warmed up the tires and they were doubled back up the green waved and they were set loose Tim raced his way past the back cars and found him self racing for the second spot . Tim took the spot and had his eyes on the leader but because Tim had to come from the back the leader was able to get a substantial lead unfortunately Tim was unable to catch him and brought home a 2 place finish And was happy with that.
This was a double weekend so had another chance to make some changes to the Phoenix and he was ready to go. Today Tim would find himself at the front of the first heat . With the tires warmed up and the field ready to go Tim set his sights for the win. With in a few laps Tim would have the lead and stay there. This would be his first win and it felt good .
Tim was told that they were going to switch heats that he was in and try to put all the cars that have won together so he again had his work cut out for him he started at the back of the winning cars he worked his way up to the front had a good race with the leader car but managed to take the lead and hold on to it. This was a boost that Tim and the team needed 2 wins in one night what could be better.
The Feature was lined up and Tim was started in the last starting position so the only place to go was forward. When the green flag waved they were racing hard when one of the front cars had a mechanical failure and drove up the track and into the turn 2 bank he hit real hard we are glad the driver is okay and will be back to race this week
The field was relined up and with in a few laps Tim found himself racing for the lead once he got in front there was no looking back. Tim won his first feature of the year way to go Tim and crew for a job well done.

Tim Tolton Suffers Mechanical Problems at Sunset Speedway

In making his second Outlaw Modified career start, Tim Tolton would suffer mechanical problems during the event at Sunset Speedway.
In the first heat, he would start fifth and look to be on his way to having a strong run, before a broken distributor gear would send him down pit road with a couple laps left. As a result of making the repair, Tolton would miss the second heat.
He would make it out for the feature, starting at the rear, and looked to be making some ground till the thermostat housing broke and took him out of the race.
Big thanks to the team for their efforts throughout the day in making the repairs necessary and having the car ready.
Thanks to Black Magic Signs and Vinyl Graphics, Bolt-on Performance, Engines from Hal, Frankís Pioneer Transmission, Twin City Auto Parts, Vinnieís Mr. Fix It and Time Stands Still Photography for their continued support.

Quick hands and Patience results in Top 10 finish Ė 7/16/13

After disappointing results with engine trouble at Delaware and at Varney after leading many laps, Tim and his crew traveled to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park for its final Lucas Oil Sportsman race. The track, thatís set to close in just two weeks following the race, was a favorite of Timís from last season as he walked away with a top five finish.
The crew quickly got behind the track conditions, as the cars handling in practice was not to be desired. The team decided on last minute a rear spring change and few bar adjustment s before time trails and got to work. Time trials would present a new problem as the new engine would not put out the horsepower needed, resulting in a qualifying time good enough for a fifteenth starting spot. The crew tried to diagnose the problem in the garage area before the race, but didnít have enough time to determine the cause.
As the green flag dropped Tim and his team hoped for the best and went to work immediately, after a few laps a car spun bringing out the caution and Tim relayed the cars condition and the crew began to work on a solution. The green flag dropped and a few laps later the caution came out again, Tim brought the car down pit road and the crew went under the hood to try a quick fix. The engine improved a little and the green dropped once again. The night would prove to be a trying one for Tim and his spotter as other cars continued to spin all around him for the remainder of the night. Tim actually had to spin himself when driving out of turn four late in the race to avoid running into a few stopped cars on the track in front of him.
Restarting in tenth with just four laps to go, Tim had to drive hard to fight off two hard charging cars behind him to come away with a top ten finish. A result the team can be proud of after overcoming the adversity of handling, engine and even brake troubles. The team will be working to find the culprit of the engines trouble and be ready to rock in Peterborough on August 10th.

Disastrous Night at Delaware

Tim and his crew headed down to Delaware Speedway this weekend with the #3 New Generation Wood Products Monte Carlo hoping to compete for the win. With only a brief time allotted for practice, the crew got to work quickly, getting the car unloaded, through tech lane and out to pit road for the first practice session.
The first session was cut short due to several cars spinning and Tim returned to the pits mentioning a misfire in the engine, some of the team hustled to look under the hood while others quickly got to work changing tires on the New Generation Monte Carlo. The team put the hood down in hopes the misfire would go away during Timís second practice run, but no such luck. A quick spark plug change was done but after the last practice session the misfire was still existent.
As the engine builder removed the valve cover the team discovered the culprit, a bent pushrod, shattered keeper, and blown apart seal told the tale of an engine failure. The teamís night was done! Only time would tell how catastrophic the damage would be.
Fortunately enough the engine can be salvaged as a bent valve held together and prevented further damage. Engines from Hal ensure the team that they will be racing at their next stop June 30th at Varney Speedway Motorplex. This is great news for Tim, the crew, and the many awesome sponsors of the New Generation Wood Products #3 as they really seemed to come together and gel during a pressed prepare-time prior to the race at Delaware.

A Wild Night at the Beach

The New Generation Wood Products #3 Monte Carlo was back in action this weekend for this seasonís second race. Using all of the practice time he could, Tim Tolton got himself comfortable with the track and set up for a long and wild night ahead.
Tim, qualifying ninth after a last minute brake pad change prior to his run, felt ready to rumble as the green flag dropped to start the event. Turn one on the opening lap become a little frantic as the lead pack of cars fought for positions right away. Tim escaped turn two unscathed and began his push to the front immediately. After a several hard battled laps between cars all over the grid, the first caution of what would be many more came out, as the 48 of Doug Cathcart was squeezed to the bottom of the track and went spinning just in front of Tim.
The green dropped and we were racing again, but two laps later another caution came out as another car lost control and went around. This quickly became the common trend for the remainder of the night. The fourth caution was a result of the 45 car, driven by rookie John Schwemler, running into Timís door panel on the front stretch just in front of the starter stand.
Timís car, unaffected by the damage, continued to march toward the front after the green flag dropped again. After a sixteen-lap green flag run, Tim had worked his way to the fifth position and was just beginning to put pressure on the fourth place car as the caution flag fell once again. On the ensuing restart on Lap 52, Tim was spun around by the 45 car, which apologized over the radio, as he was being pushed from behind as well. This caution also collected the 48 of Cathcart and the 60 of Jake Ott.
The following restart was another exciting one as the 45 of Schwemler drove hard, going three wide into turn one and bounced of Tim rear quarter panel and spun around bringing out yet another caution flag. After another brief period of green flag racing Tim had worked his way back to eighth spot as a caution dropped again with just four laps remaining.
As the green flag dropped for the final four laps, Tim quickly moved to the outside and drove hard to earn himself the sixth spot and managed to defend his position from the challenging seventh place car of rookie Kevin Allen.
Settling for a sixth place finish in a caution filled race was a result that Tim and his team were pleased with after being spun themselves earlier on in the event. The track seemed to be a difficult track to make a pass, as the top four cars held their ground for the entire event.
The 2013 season has been an aggressive one so far. With a lot of damaged race cars after just two races, the teams have put in a lot of extra hours in the race shops preparing for the next race. Hopefully the bumping and banging will subdue for a while and the field can get a few long runs in at our next race at Delaware Speedway on Friday, June 21st.

The 2013 season is upon us!

The #3 New Generation Wood Products Monte Carlo was ready to go for the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series season opener at Varney Speedway Motorplex this past Saturday May 18th. Needing just a few minor adjustments following practice, Tim and the crew felt ready and excited to get going. Tim who was set to head out third for his qualifying run, had to wait it out due to a light rainfall. Once the rain had subsided the track officials, knowing Varney was his home track, asked Tim to turn a few hot laps to test the track condition before proceeding with the race program. Once Tim gave his approval, he was asked to take his qualifying run in the last spot, as this gave his tires a chance to cool down and level the playing field for the other drivers taking their runs on cold tires. After his long awaited attempt Tim turned a 13.651 second lap which was good enough for a 2nd place time.
The top five qualifiers, deemed the Fast Five, then line up on the front stretch of the track and pull numbers from a hat to determine their true starting position. Tim also managed to pull the 2nd starting position, meaning starting on the front row at his home track. Tim was excited about this result as well and eager to get racing.
The green flagged dropped, engines roared, and the crowd erupted as Tim and the pole sitter traded paint down the front stretch before even reaching the start/finish line.
Tim, not wanting to damage the car with contact coming from the pole sitter he made a few more attemts at getting by then settled into second position. While reeling in the leader after few laps, a lapped car spun to bring on the races first caution flag.
On the first restart, the pole sitter once again came up the track and slammed Tim into the wall, cutting a tire and tearing the nose off the New Generation Monte Carlo. Tim tried to race around the track to get to the pits to quickly fix his car and get racing again. His efforts where cut short, as the pole sitter tried to block him again on the front stretch leaving Tim no room to get by and unable to avoid more contact due to a flat tire and lack of steering.
Officials then deemed Timís contact as retaliation for the initial hit and did not allow him to return to the racetrack once repairs where completed by the pit crew.
An very unfortunate beginning to the much anticipated season, however, the team behind the New Generation Monte Carlo will not be discouraged so easily, and will be working extra hard to bring a fast car to our next race at Sauble Speedway on June 8th.

Tim Tolton Scores Solid Fourth Place Effort at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park

We are pleased to report that Tim ran the No. 3 Black Magic Monte Carlo to a fourth place finish.
With the weather hot, the team had their work cut out for them. This is one of the only paved ovals Tim has not driven on, so they did not know what to expect from the car or the driver.
Tim went out in practice and was not happy with the car. He came back in and with a few helpful hints from Roger Mcglynn, Tim went out and did a great run and qualified seventh.
With the cars lined up and having been given a few pointers about the track from Amanda Conolley, the race was started with the first few laps of the race used to allow Tim to get comfortable in the car, still not being the car he felt it could be. It eventually came to him and he started to gain speed and confidence. He gained a couple of spots putting himself in fifth at 64 laps complete. When the race resumed Tim made a few quick moves to put himself in third although this didn't last and was passed, putting himself back in fourth
Tim was very happy finishing fourth, for the first time in the top five. A very Happy crew and driver congrats on a job well done
Thanks to Ken Brown, Steve Gregoul, Scott Marvin, Harold Norry, and Clayton Celovsky for your help on giving the Black Magic crew the best finish of their L.O.S.C. history.
A big thanks goes out to Bobby Tolton who stepped up to the drivers duties at Varney while Tim was in Mosport. Another job well done as he brought home two heat wins and a fifth place feature. Good job Bobby
The next race for the L.O.S.C series is August 11th at Peterborough Speedway

Tim Tolton Suffers Mechanical Failure in Sportsman Series Season Opener

By: Donna Tolton and Ashley McCubbin


After mechanical problems in the season opener, rookie Tim Tolton would finish 14th in his Lucas Oil Sportsman Series debut at Varney Motor Speedway.
 
After a long winter and many long nights, the No. 3 Monte Carlo was ready to hit the track. They'd get some practice laps in Saturday night before the big on Sunday to get a feel for the car. As the sun came up on Sunday, the crew worked feverishly on final preperations to make sure they were ready.
 
In qualifying, the time to beat for the pole was 13.76 seconds. Tolton would be the third last car to go out and would lay down a lap of 13.86 seconds, landing him a third place qualifying effort.
 
During intermission, Tim Tolton was introduced to the crowd, along with the other top five qualifiers, to draw for his starting position.
 
"They gave five little fans a hat and the drivers would pick a child, whose hat they would sign," Donna explains the draw format. "Inside the hat was a number and that number would be where they would start. Tim picked the shy little girl in the back and he got the number he wanted."
 
The number Tolton picked would be one, therefore putting him on the pole for the feature.
 
When it was time, Tolton was ready to go as the blood was pumping with the smell of gas and the anticipation from the crowd.
 
On the drop of the green flag, he would pull out to the early lead and he would stay there as the lead got bigger as the laps would continue to tick away. Soon a caution would come out around lap 25 for an incident.
 
On the restart, Tolton would pull out into the lead, but it would not last as smoke became to pour out of the black No. 3 car. An oil leak had caused a fire under the hood and he had to pull off the track. Between his own crew, the McNicolr Racing, Wilson Motorsports and the crew from the No. 89 Rona LLM, they did everything to fix the oil leak and got Tolton back on track.
 
However, the problem only got worse as more smoke began to pour out. Tolton would park the car, feeling defeated and heartbroken as he got a DNF. He would be out of this one, but with help from Engines From Hal, he will be back as strong as ever.
 
Tolton would also compete in the Stock-4 class at Varney Motor Speedway over the weekend, where he would finish third in the feature on Saturday and fourth in the feature on Sunday.
 
Black Magic Racing would like to thank everyone for making this a dream come true. From every person who had a hand in getting the car ready for opening day, from the crew to the wives to the children, and mostly to the fans who made the day possible.

Tim Tolton Finishes Third & Fourth in Pair of Stock-4 Features at Varney

By: Donna Tolton and Ashley McCubbin
 
On Saturday night at Varney Motor Speedway, Tim Tolton would be racing his Nissan 240x, which had been neglected all winter due to preparations on the Lucas Oil Sportsman Series car. With no practice, Tolton went into the first race, unsure of what the car was going to do.
 
Tolton started near the back of the field and was in for the tough battle of trying to work his way through the field. While trying to pass Cory Young, he would slam the wall very hard, but was still able to pull off a fifth place finish.
 
"He was a happy camper," his wife Donna comments. "Racing had begun with the adrenalin flowing."
 
In the second heat, he would line up in the fourth position, ready to go for broke. He ran hard and passed Jessie Way and then held off Brian Wilson to finish in third place.
 
In the feature, Tolton would line up in the sixth position, ready for a long feature as the faster cars were starting in front of him. Tolton would lock into a fierce battle with Tessa Cremasco as they went back and forth for position, catching the eyes of many fans. Tolton had made his way up to the third position, before a last lap pass had him finish in fourth place.
 
On Sunday, it marked another day of Stock-4 racing at Varney Motor Speedway. However, today was a special day as Tolton would be out there racing against his son, Bobby Tolton. Bobby was making his 2012 Varney Motor Speedway debut after running Barrie Speedway so far this year.
 
"Not only was I proud to see him out there, but he was proud to be out there with his son racing him hard," Donna comments.
 
Due to the Lucas Oil Sportsman Series being at Varney, the Stock-4s would only be given one round of heats. Father and son would land in the same heat and they put on a show. Tim started ninth while Bobby started eighth. They raced hard side-by-side throughout the heat, but in the end to avoid a collision, Tim let off in the corner and Bobby slipped by him. The race ended with Bobby finishing fourth while Tim finished fifth.
 
In the feature, Tim would line up fifth, ready to run hard. An early caution would slow the cars and give them a chance to a cool a bit while Tim continued to run fifth with Bobby fourth. The father-son combo would not get to race each other throughout the whole race as Bobby would pull off the track due to a blown motor.
 
Tolton would work his way to the front, before a couple cars passing him late would cause him to finish in the fourth spot.
 
On Sunday, Tolton also ran the Lucas Oil Sportsman Series race where mechanical problems would result in him finishing 14th despite posting the third quickest time in qualifying.
 
Tolton's next stock-4 race is this weekend on Saturday at Varney Motor Speedway. He will then run the opening race for the McColl Pro Series at Sunset Speedway on Sunday.
