Tim Gordon Racing
Tim Gordon, a 3rd generation
Driver from Guelph Ontario Canada. Father Paul Gordon who owns the racing team. Raced late models in Ontario with Grandfather George was a long time member/driver in the Canadian vintage modified. Tim Gordon was raised at the track, born April 10, 1991. Seven weeks later he’s at the track on May 24, 1991. Since then Tim followed his dad and grandparents to any race track he could.
At the age of 9. Tim Gordon started to help out, as being a part of the race team. Doing anything he could to help and learn as much as he can from Owner/Driver Jr. Farrelly. After 3 years of learning from Jr. Farrelly. Tim Ellis – Tim’s god father, had decided to start racing again. Tim Gordon and his father Paul, joined as crew members. Winning many races over 5 years as a team.
As soon as Tim Gordon had turned 16, his father bought him his 1st race car chassis. Over the following year, they’ve updated and finished the car to race at the Sauble Speedway. After 6-part time years in LLM/LM. The Tim Gordon Racing Team looks for better things in 2016, leaving behind a tough 2015 season. With tech help from chassis expert Brian MacDonald. Look for the #77 ATV Depot / Carbuff car across Ontario in 2016.

Tim Gordon’s god father – In 1992 Tim Ellis’s father landed what was likely one of the largest late model sponsorship ever with Ol Grandad’s potato chips. The decision came down to Kerry Micks’ CASCAR or our Late Model. Honored that Dave Marcella Sr. chose our team. Our 1993 car is shown with Tim Gordon who now drives the #77 LLM and Cheryl Simkin his Mom. 1994 would mark the start of a new era in my career.
My Dad bought a brand new CASCAR so we could take our program to a new level. In our second outing we were in a bad wreck in turn one at Cayuga. I got stopped but Sean Dupuis’ radios weren’t working and he hit the back of our car wide open as he entered the corner. The car was basically wrecked beyond repair. Fortunately, after we built our CASCAR a family friend bought our Late Model under the condition that I would race it 6 times per year for him while we ran our CASCAR program.
We decided to go back Late Model racing full time and forgo our CASCAR career. In a little over a week we assembled the Late Model which was totally stripped down for a new front clip. In fact, we finished the car on the sand at the beach the day of our first race, which we won. And the birth of Ellis/Milne racing took place. Couldn’t have got that car together so fast without a lot of help from many, including Paul Gordon, Don Worthington, Ron Williams, Jim Ellis and many others. The Milne Family, T.J. Milne, Dawn Milne, Leah Milne Champagne Jeannie Milne and Doug Milne have owned our cars ever since.
One of the photos of that car shows Doug Milne, Don Worthington and Ron Williams (Marilyn Williams). Some of my greatest memories and stories include Ron. Ron’s support and contribution to our team had a tremendous impact on my career and many others. His passing left a void in the racing world without a doubt.
