Hart was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and raised in Seal Beach, California. He is of Irish, Italian, Swedish, and Polish ancestry. His parents divorced when he was very young and he and his younger brother Anthony "Tony" Hart were raised by their father, Tom Hart. Hart began competing in motocross races in 1981 at only 6 years old, turned professional in 1993 when he was 18 and began competing in super cross racing at that time. Hart then began competing in freestyle motocross (FMX) in 1996.

During the 2000 Gravity Games, Hart attempted a back flip in a motorcycle competition. He also invented a freestyle motocross trick known as the Hart Attack.

Hart has traveled around the world promoting freestyle Motocross. He has jumped the trailer park in Kid Rock's video "Bawitdaba". On the 2000 Australian Warped Tour, he played bass with the band Pennywise. He has also appeared in Pink's "Just Like A Pill", "So What", and "Raise Your Glass" videos.

Hart married American singer Pink (Alecia Moore) on January 7, 2006, in Costa Rica. The two had met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the 2001 X Games. After four years of dating, Pink proposed to Hart in 2005 via a pit board during one of his races in Mammoth Lakes, California. She was holding a sign saying "Will you marry me?" Initially, Hart ignored her and completed another lap of the race. Only when Pink changed the sign and held it up again with it now saying, "I'm serious," did Hart pull out of the race to pick Pink up. They married in the Four Seasons resort in Costa Rica in January 2006. After months of speculation, Pink announced in February 2008 that she and Hart had separated. In 2008 Pink's Song "So What" showed that her husband and she were separated and she wanted to put him in the video so as to not hurt him.

During their separation, in August 2008, Pink was supportive of her estranged husband when Hart's brother died due to injuries sustained in a motocross competition.In March 2009, Hart said he and Pink were "dating". He also said the couple was attempting to work things out, stating, "Sometimes you have to take a couple of steps back to move forward". In April 2009, Pink said the couple had gone to marriage counseling, was back together, and were never divorced.
