Born Jonathan Day under the sign of Leo on the 10th of August 1973, at St. Joseph Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee USA, now known as JJ Da Boss he is a 44-year-old Caucasian muscle car enthusiast and underground racer. He is perhaps best known to the world for his significant presence on the TV screen as himself in the Discovery channel reality TV series about underground racing entitled “Street Outlaws: Memphis.” He has also had a number of other successes over the course of his sometimes lucrative underground racing career, since the 1990s.
What does JJ Da Boss do for a living?
Early Life: Growing Up in Joiner
JJ was raised an only child in a small town called Joiner in Arkansas, by parents of unknown names, but both of whom were roofers. He took an interest in driving at a very young age, having been in his first race as early as 10 years old, despite that being theoretically illegal, but then JJ did what he could to make money. Although he roofed along with his parents whenever that was possible, it wasn’t enough to fuel his racing dream, so he had to make more on the side. He often gambled and took part in other activities, some of which were against the law, subsequently using all the money he earned to improve his racing car, which was eventually fit to match the toughest of opponents. As for his education, JJ attended the Rivercrest School in his hometown, from where he matriculated in 1992. It is unknown whether he furthered his education by going to college.

Career: The Struggle of an Underground Racer
His Jail Time
JJ was imprisoned at an unspecified date for eight years and one month, after being found guilty of multiple accumulated felonies that eventually caught up with him – while fact is that he committed most crimes to have enough money to modify his cars, it still doesn’t provide a good enough alibi to justify breaking the law. After serving his prison sentence, he started buying and fixing old cars to make money, and at some point returned to racing with a new car, and still retains both professions today.
JJ’s GMC Sierra pickup was turned into a wreck after a long night of racing, when he fell asleep while driving back to Arkansas early in the morning; his car struck a concrete culvert in the vicinity of Newport at an estimated 55mph speed. Since he was at that point hauling both his ‘Ole Heavy’ and ‘Heifer’ vehicles, they both broke from their security straps and ended up in a nearby ditch, while the spare parts flew all over the highway. JJ had a broken hand and rib, along with numerous cuts and bruises. He stated: ‘Luckily it broke my right arm…I’m left handed.’
Love Life: Married To Patricia ‘Midget’ Day
Nothing is known about JJ’s relationships prior to his public one, specifically with his now wife Tricia Day, whose age is unknown. It is also unspecified when they started dating, but there’s the fact that they’ve been together for at least 20 years, and married for over 10 years at this point, while the specifics of their wedding are also a mystery. Together, they have at least 11 children – some reports say 13 – and five grandchildren.
