Debuting in the ARCA Racing Series in 2011, King won the pole for his first race with Venturini Motorsports. He finished third in that race, but won the pole in his second career start too. He started three races in 2011 with a best finish of third in his first race, at Madison International Speedway.[1] King expanded his schedule to six races in 2012, not winning any poles but finishing out of the top ten only once.[2] His only start in 2013 was a seventh at Berlin Raceway.[3] On January 9, 2017, Lira Motorsports announced that King would drive the Lucas Oil Complete Engine Treatment 200 at Daytona International Speedway.[4]

King broke into the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2016, driving the No. 15 Ford for B. J. McLeod Motorsports at Richmond International Raceway.[6] King finished 30th that first race, but then improved to 26th in his other two outings, at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway.[7] After the 2016 season, team owner B.
