Brief History:
Michael began racing in 2018 in the FWD class, where he collected 14 FWD wins, including victories in the the Factory Stock 50, Louisiana State Championship Race, and Spooky 50.

He began racing Limited Modifieds in 2019. Along the way he's tallied eight Limited Modified Wins and was the 2020 Super Bee (Chatham) Speedway Limited Modified Champion.

King added a Crate Late Model to the arsenal in 2022 and his engine put motor together that allowed Michael to race at the Dome in December of that year.

He decided he wanted me to continue to run the steel block engine as he hones his skills in the Late Model, so he's embarked on the Titan Legends Late Model Series in 2023, where he's competing for the Rookie of the Year.

Was invited to join Tim Leming on The Racing Spotlight podcast on April 4, 2023, and the interview can be heard at: www.spreaker.com/show/the-racing-spotlight
