Jonathan Nerren began his drifting career in Japan while serving in the US Navy. He started competitively drifting once back stateside in 2010.

While making his way through the ranks in amateur and multiple PRO-AM series, he starred on the NBC TV show "Octane Academy", while aired 8 episodes. Jonathan ultimately finished in 2nd place overall,

representing Vaughn Gittin Jr in the final.

Jonathan received his Formula Drift Pro 2 license twice in 2015, winning the US Drift Championship as well as placing 2nd overall in the Streetwise Drift Championship, dominating the East coast. In 2016, he competed in the Formula Drift Canada Pro Series alongside new teammate Tyler Nelson. 2016 brought many podiums for the new team, ultimately finishing 4th and 6th overall in Pro FD Canada in the 30+ driver field. Jonathan also took the overall series championship in the Turismo Drift Series. Jonathan's 3rd teammate also earned his Pro 2 license in the same year through his coaching and team support.

In 2017, the JNR team brought on a 3rd Pro driver and a 4th teammate to compete in PRO-AM. 2017 was the year of podiums and wins, dominating FD Pro Canada. The team finished 2nd and 3rd overall with JNR seeing podiums every event, with Jonathan finishing 2nd overall

and 5-year teammate Tyler Nelson took on a wild 2020 season,

making their rookie debut in Formula Drift Pro 1 USA.
