Jeff Gordon said his daughter's start in racing was coming soon. Apparently soon meant Tuesday.
Gordon tweeted a photo of his six-year-old daughter Ella in a quarter-midget race car for the first time.

In an interview with Larry King before the race at Auto Club Speedway in March, Gordon said he wasn't sure how much his daughter would take to driving.
"I don't know how much she's really going to take to it because she doesn't seem to have that passion for racing, but we'll see, and I think she should definitely get the opportunity to get behind the wheel." Gordon said at the time.
Judging by the look on her face Tuesday, Ella Gordon might be hooked. Chase Elliott may have to watch his back soon, there could be an even younger hotshot offspring of a Sprint Cup champion making waves.
