King Racing, a team formed by NHRA champion Kenny Bernstein, made their debut during the 1988 season, fielding the No. 15 and 17 Mac Tools Lola T8700-Buick V6 at the Indianapolis 500 with Jim Crawford in No. 15 and Johnny Rutherford in No. 17. Both qualified mid-pack. Crawford led for eight laps (the only laps not led by a Team Penske driver). He was running in second place late in the race, nut then ran too low on the track, getting into the grass, and dropped to 6th place during a pit stop to change the damaged tire. For the British driver, it was his most notable run at Indy out of his 12 attempts in 1984 – 1995.
