Paul Tracy (born December 17, 1968 in Scarborough, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a professional automobile racer who competed in the Champ Car World Series from 1991 to 2008. He is nicknamed "PT" and also goes by the nickname "The Thrill from West Hill".

Fascinated by cars since boyhood, Paul raced go-karts at Goodwood Kartways near his hometown until he was 16. At age 16, in 1985, he became the youngest ever Canadian Formula Ford Champion. He was also the winner of the final Can-Am race at the age of 17; in that same race he achieved the record of the youngest winner in Can-Am history.

Tracy worked his way up through the North American open-wheel feeder series' culminating with winning the 1990 Indy Lights Championship, and in the process set a record for single season wins with nine.
