DJ’s hard work ethic has helped him become a contender in the CPCA. 2018 saw DJ have 14 Top 15 runs and an impressive 4 out of 10 show finishes as well as 4 more top 20 show finishes. Kings roots in wagon racing run deep as his uncle Daniel. At one-time King was registered for the CPCA outriding school however he was drafted by the St. Louis Blues and went on to play in the NHL with the Blues and Washington Capitals.
