Les King

Les King first became interested in speed buggies in 1925 and maintained that love through the early 1960s. While King also campaigned stock cars and was even involved in sports car racing, he is remembered for his midgets and his famous “K-2 Offy” big car (sprint) that he campaigned on the IMCA State Fair circuit with for many years. King sent many drivers to victory lane. The list of drivers who piloted his cars reads like a who’s who of open-wheel drivers of the era: George “Andy” Anderson, Jerry Blundy, Don Branson, Jud Larson, Mac McHenry, LeRoy Neumayer and Bobby Parker. King passed away December 5, 1980. He was inducted into the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 1999.
