NASCAR Race Shops are essential to what makes Cabarrus County “Where Racing Lives.” Navigate the speed scene and step inside the cutting-edge facilities where it all begins. Rick Hendrick founded All-Star Racing in 1984 fielding a single team with five full-time employees and 5,000 square feet. One mile from Charlotte Motor Speedway, the organization is now home to a record 12 car owner championships in NASCAR’s premier division and fields four NASCAR Cup teams with drivers William Byron, Alex Bowman, Chase Elliott and seven-time champion, Jimmie Johnson. Watch teams at work inside viewing areas of the 9/24 and 48/88 shops, see cars on display and snag exclusive souvenirs like tires used in competition at the Museum & Team Store. See website or call for Race Shop and Museum hours of operations.
