The Story of JJ Hightail


J.J. HIGHTAIL
EX-PROFESSIONAL RACECAR DRIVER

JJ Hightail is a former professional racecar driver. He grew up in the sweet little town of Shockey, Tennessee, to which he credits his charm, country wit, and passion for racing anything with wheels.

After retiring from the speedway, JJ’s “can-do” attitude has carried on into all aspects of his life, from mastering rice grain painting to swimming the length of the Mighty Mississippi to curating one of the world’s largest collections of viral cat videos.
