It is not a secret that JJ Da Boss does things a bit differently in the streets of Memphis. After all, his title of King of Streets is not just for show. So, when his son Doughboy decided to get into racing, JJ Da Boss wanted to make sure his eldest was ready. In the second episode of the first season, JJ invited racers from Mississippi and Missouri, to see if his boy could take the heat. While Doughboy didn’t win all his races, his skills show a glimpse of what’s to come. Passion runs in the family and JJ wouldn’t be disappointed after seeing his son race.
Josh Day otherwise known as Doughboy was born on Dec 31, 1990, in Joiner, Arkansas. The eldest son of JJ, little is known about Josh’s mother. This is not surprising given that JJ is said to have 10 children but only four of them with his current partner Tricia Day. To be fair to JJ, he met Tricia late in his career and already had 6 kids by then. Like all of JJ’s kids, Josh spent almost all of his early life around the racing courses. What little is revealed of his education, Josh went to Lake County High School.
Growing without a father:
It is well known that JJ went to prison for some eight years. While it is not known if he had Josh before or after he went to prison, it is safe to say that JJ wasn’t always around. While young Josh spent much of his early life without his father, JJ’s influence was always with the family.
Life as a racer:
Akin to all the street racers in his family, Josh began driving from a relatively young age. However, his first real race came in January of 2018. The race was documented in the reality TV series, Street Outlaws: Memphis. The race was aired on the second episode of the first season. Entitled Doughboy Fresh, the episode saw JJ bring all of his family members to test if his eldest is ready to take on the tracks. Equipped with his father’s 1962 Impala (Debo), Josh took the streets for the first time. And while Josh is yet to own a car of his own, we are sure there’s more to come from this up and coming racer.
While Josh’s skills are a far cry from his father, he shares the same passion. Behind the wheel, Josh gives a glimpse of a young JJ, passionate and aggressive. And while Josh didn’t win all his racers, we for one think that JJ is glad to see his son get in on the act.
Back in his early racing days, Doughboy had a terrible accident. He lost control of the car and went on a tumbling barrel run to stop on the side of the street. While few say that the car was caught on the tape, many think that Doughboy was just rubbing his win. Fortunately for Doughboy, he walked out without any injuries and lived to race another day.
Doughboy is married to the badass Chelsea Day. Like Josh, Chelsea is also a street racer and is quite good at what she does. Chelsea has been learning more about the world of street racing under the wing of JJ. In their years as a married couple, Josh and Chelsea are parents to two lovely children, Kamden and Novaleigh Day.
While JJ calls his youngest Jonathan Wayne “Little JJ,” Josh is the only child who takes after him. Nevertheless, it is too early to judge Jonathan based on his racing ability. The fourth child of JJ and Tricia Day, Jonathan is just a minor of three years (born March 31, 2017). JJ and Tricia’s other three children are Aubrey (eldest), middle daughter Vada, and Annaline Day. Josh’s other know sibling is Whitney Day from JJ’s previous relationship with Liz Slack.
Not just pride, every time Josh takes on the race money is at the stake. And the winner takes it all. Somewhat unorthodox but the earning from bets is part of his income but not always guaranteed. He has a more steady income from the TV show “Street Outlaws.” With all the talks about his income source, it is frustrating not to point out his net worth. And the fact Doughboy has successfully concealed information about his properties makes it hard to figure out his net worth.

Doughboy, Josh, or whatever they prefer to call he was born with the birth name Joshua Day. As we speak he is 29 years of age. He is an American and belongs to caucasian ethnicity. Josh and his wife currently live with their two children in Batesville, Arkansas.
