Tim Tetrick (born 1982 in Flora, Illinois) is an American Harness Racing driver. Tim started driving Standardbreds at a very young age and on November 27, 2007 broke the record of number of wins (1,077) for a single year which was set in 1998 by Walter Case, Jr. Tim drove his 1,078th winner at Dover Downs in Delaware on the way to recording 1,189 wins that year.

Tim was named Driver of the Year for 2007 and 2008 by the US Harness Writers Association.

He underwent hip replacement surgery in early December, 2008 for a congenital hip problem, but was back competing by late January 2008. He is expected to have the other hip replaced in late 2009.

Tim's colors are green and gold, as are those of his father, Tom, his brothers Trace and Tom, who is known as just "T." He is also recognizable on the track by the bright yellow wheels on the sulky he drives.
