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.

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.
