Springsteen was born in Flint, Michigan, in April 1957.
His parents both worked in the auto industry. Springsteen’s father was an amateur motorcycle racer. The middle of three brothers, Springsteen began riding motorcycles when he was nine and started racing soon thereafter.
“I started out on a little Harley-Davidson minibike, riding around in circles in my front yard. I guess not a lot changed during my career.”
– Jay Springsteen
