Mooresville, NC: A Hotbed for Sports Venues

Located 25 miles north of Charlotte on beautiful Lake Norman with exceptional sports venues and attractions off the field to make any event one they will look forward to every year


Mooresville, North Carolina

They call it Race City, USA. This is appropriate because the town is home to many NASCAR teams and related businesses, along with an INDYCAR team. In addition to offering two automotive museums—Memory Lane Motorsports and Historical Automotive Museum and North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame—Race City is also the home to NASCAR teams JR Motorsports, Team Penske, Kyle Busch Motorsports and Kasey Kahne Racing to name a few.

But it would be unfair to limit Mooresville to just racing. It is, in fact, a well-known focus for tourney planners looking to organize events in North Carolina. The town has taken advantage of its close proximity to Charlotte and warm Southern weather by building and maintaining a number of exceptional sports complexes for a variety of athletic ventures.
