Doc from Street Outlaws
Born James Love on February 19, 1969, in Moore, Oklahoma, he is better known as Doc from Street Outlaws.
He graduated from Moore High School in Oklahoma, and later attended the Universal Technical Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The reality star began drag racing because of his passion for cars and the need for speed. Everybody he knew had a muscle car in the late ‘70s and ‘80s, so it was easy for him to get hooked on racing.
Doc’s Street Outlaws Car
In an interview, Doc revealed that his first racecar was a 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo. He bought it on eBay and drove it back to Oklahoma City.
Immediately after buying it, Doc put it on the track. This was when his interest in racing peaked.
Doc’s 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo is called “The Street Beast.” He faced a lot of problems with his car, but it looks like he has a very powerful engine now and is planning to be in the top 10.
What Does Doc from Street Outlaws Do for a Living?
Currently, Doc on Street Outlaws’ job is racing other drivers on the show.
He spoke about how he landed on the show and said, “Believe it or not, we used to play on a discussion board called Midwest Streetcars. We all had screen names and would cuss each other out, call each other out all on the computer. That’s all it was and then we’d get together on the weekends and settle it.”

The reality star continued, “Race for our list spots and race for fun. One day this guy got on the website and said, ‘Hey, I’m so and so from Pilgrim Studios. I’m interested in filming you guys. Do you want to be on TV?’”
“Chief answered and said, ‘If you’re for real, call me.’ That’s kinda where it came from. Discovery Channel through Pilgrim found us in the Middle of the United States, the armpit of America, and voila, the TV show was built,” he explained.
