Like his namesake, Joe ‘Dominator’ Woods has an aggressive racing style. A personality which he hopes will earn him the nickname, King of the Streets. One of the newer cast members of the series, Joe is slowly catching up to the veterans. A soft-spoken fellow, Joe flips on a switch when he is on the seat of the 1967 Dart. Unlike some of his peers, Joe takes racing seriously and is there to win and not just to have fun. He sees the top 5 as his competition and is looking to hold the number one spot someday. Even though he is currently running a nitrous plate, Joe has a fogger system in the works.
Joe hasn’t revealed much about his early life and his family growing up. From a young age, Jow was inspired by his father and would often help out his father in the garage. His father would often tell Joe that if he wanted a car, he must first learn how to take care of it. Joe got his first car at the age of 13. The 1956’s Chevy was a perfect start for a young Joe who was getting the hang of street racing.
How he got the name?
In a rare interview, Joe explained how he came up with his racer name.
“My buddy has a website for old-school nostalgia stuff and when my wife set up an account for me, I needed a name. We used Dominator and when I found the Midwest Streetcars website, I just used the same name and it stuck.”
Life on the streets:
Joe was already racing by the time he approached his early teens. Alongside his career as a racer, Joe is also a mechanic. He has been fixing and customizing cars for a long time, which gives him an edge when it comes to innovation. Joe is also a welding instructor for a drilling company in Oklahoma.
Joining Street Outlaws:
Joe Woods is one of the late entries in the reality TV show, Street Outlaws. He joined the series in its sixth season and has been a regular cast member since then. The series is currently in its 15th season and is expected to go on. In his first season at the TV series, Joe drove pure nitrous set up but he was forced to change to a twin-turbo set up in season 7. One of the top five racers on the show, Joe is certainly looking at the number one spot currently held by Daddy Dave.
Alongside his work on cars, Dave also sells merchandise and accessories on his website. Entitled www.Dominator405racing.com, his website sells several accessories as well. Dave has his hands full with street racing and working as a welding instructor.
His numerous exploits have brought him a considerable amount of net worth. As of 2020, his net worth is assumed to be around USD 1 million.
A softspoken guy, Joe is married to his longtime wife Lisa Woods. The two met through their mutual love for cars. Joe was attending a car show where Lisa was with one of Joe’s high school friends. Although it did not instantly click the two hit it off two years later and ever since Joe and Lisa are together.
Lisa is car fanatics and can do pretty much anything with them. From getting her hand dirty fixing things to getting behind the wheel in the race track. We can say they complement each other. Also, Lisa is part of the team “Dominator” which takes part in the street race and reality tv show Street Outlaws.
Lisa is also a homemaker and raises their children. In the years of togetherness, Joe and Lisa have given birth to three children, all girls. Their eldest Joelee is 11 middle daughter Madison is 9 and the youngest Cammy is 8 years old. It is said that Joelee looks up to them and has found a passion for cars.
