Day Trips

Cabarrus County’s neighbors share our love of racing and welcome guests to explore the sport at these regional racing attractions.

Home to premier motorsports must-sees like Charlotte Motor Speedway, Cabarrus County is the start and finish line for the ultimate racing-themed vacation in North Carolina.

With this area as home base, extend your journey with a lap through motorsports country. Just a short drive away, you’ll find even more popular motorsports pit stops. In Charlotte, explore the interactive NASCAR Hall of Fame and visit Carowinds to take a thrill ride on The Intimidator. Inspired by Dale Earnhardt Sr. This hyper coaster reaches speeds of up to 80 MPH and is one of the top ten tallest steel roller coasters in North America.

In Mooresville, take a tour of JR Motorsports and uncover even more of the sport’s heritage at the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame.

Add a few of these detours to your time in Cabarrus and you’ll discover that when it comes to racing, there’s no place like North Carolina!
