Being British champion comes with the added prize of a wildcard appearance in the British Grand Prix - a round of the World Championship held at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
King raced in that event after his 2016 title success.
He is enjoying an excellent 2019 season for his two clubs - Sheffield in the SGB Premiership and Sheffield in the SGB Championship.
