Updated November,  2005

We have been a busy family this past year and racing was moved to the back burner with two little ones to tend to. Remington is now 2 years old and Hunter just had his first birthday on October 25. (Where has time gone?)Todd took a promotion at work in 2004 which limited the time he could get off of work to race, leaving us to Jacksonville, FL, local WKA events and Rock Island Grand Prix in 2004. This year was even more difficult and he only attended Rock Island. We are looking forward to a more competitive 2006 racing season, now that Todd has weekends off. He has spent a lot of time in the woods with his other passion, hunting. I don't recall many days in November that he didn't hunt. Todd is trying to plan on attending the WKA spring nationals and other WKA events as well as RIGP. We hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday season.

Check back after the Holidays for a 2006 schedule.

About The Todd Bolton Racing Team
The Todd Bolton Racing Team (TBR) is a family team. The team consists of Driver - Todd Bolton, Team Manager and Pit Crew - Jessica Bolton (Todd's wife), Crew Chief - Charles Bolton (Todd's father), Financial Advisor - Judy Bolton (Todd's mom). TBR is based out of our home in Bowen, IL. Todd grew up in Bowen, a small town of 500 people in West-Central Illinois, and still enjoys the community and the small town life. Todd is 33 years old and has been competing in karting for 17 years. He has competed in a variety of classes, both in 2-cycle and 4-cycle, on dirt tracks, sprint tracks and in street races. Todd loves the excitement and challenge of the street races in events such as the Quincy South Park Grand Prix and the Rock Island Grand Prix. In more recent years, Todd has concentrated his efforts in the 2-cycle classes: Pipe, Super Sportsman, Senior Sportsman, HPV and Direct Drive. Todd is his own mechanic. He sets up the kart, from adjusting the chassis to finding the right gear set up. He spends hours in the garage making sure that the kart is perfect for race day. Todd also repairs and rebuilds his own clutches.

Personal Interests & Hobbies
Todd began racing in 1987. He started with 4 cycles on local dirt tracks and later moved into the 2 cycles in the mid 90's. Todd grew up in Bowen, graduating from Southeastern High School in 1990. He earned an Associates Degree in Law Enforcement in 1992, before getting hired on to the Illinois Department of Corrections as a Correctional Officer in 1993. Todd took a promotion in 2004 as a Correctional Food Supervisor. Todd and Jessica were married in 1998 and keep themselves busy racing, hunting and keeping up with the 3 dogs. They have two boys, Remington and Huntington, ages 2 & 1. Todd and Jessica look forward to future junior kart racers in 2008 and 2009. Jessica is a Police Officer at Western Illinois University.

Besides living for RACING (karts), Todd also enjoys spending time hunting. Todd hunts archery and shotgun seasons for deer, turkey and quail. He also enjoys shooting 3D archery and trap shooting. Todd also enjoys his time spent at home with his two sons and Jessica, as well as their 3 dogs (2 hunting dogs). If Todd is not watching Extreme Sports events on TV or following NASCAR and Formula 1, you will find him surfing the world wide web - racing sites of corse, where he can chat with other karters and keep up on the latest news. Check out the Favorite Links page and look for Todd on one of those sites.
