King Racing was the name of famed NHRA Champion Kenny Bernstein's NASCAR Winston Cup team that operated in the late-1980's and early-1990's.

The team won its first race in 1988 with Ricky Rudd at the wheel of the Quaker State Buick at the Bud at the Glen race at Watkins Glen. Rudd also won the Banquet 300 at Sears Point Raceway in 1989.

The third and final win for King Racing came in 1990 at the First Union 400 at North Wilkesboro Speedway with Brett Bodine driving. Bodine competed in the most events with the team, driving in 158 races. Bernstein sold the team to Bodine in 1995 but has maintained his NHRA team with continuing success.

In the early 1990s King Racing ran a Champ Car team. The team scored a pole position at the 1992 Indianapolis 500 with Roberto Guerrero driving.
