Jeff Gordon’s 6-year-old daughter takes to the track (PHOTOS)

Earnhardt. Andretti. Petty. Unser. Rahal. These are the names of some of the great racing families in our sport.

Could we be adding the name Gordon to this list one day?

Time will tell, but what we do know is that four-time Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon has apparently passed down the racing gene to his six-year-old daughter, Ella, who took her first laps in a quarter midget earlier this week.

Both Gordon and his wife, Ingrid, tweeted photos from the outing:

Gordon himself got his start in quarter midget racing when he was a young boy. No doubt he’ll have plenty to teach his daughter if she chooses to become a racer herself.

    Wow, that is a happy kid. Hope it continues, the third pic says a lot about her interest.

    Pretty cool seeing kids start out on what may eventually be a career in auto racing. She picked a good number too. ;)

    I am not Jeff Gordons # 1 fan but I can tell you this. His daughter will learn from one of the vary best. Jeff is one smart duck behind the wheel of a car, most likely anything he drives.
