Cabarrus County, "Where Racing Lives" is home to an unequaled concentration of motorsports attractions from Charlotte Motor Speedway and zMAX Dragway to Hendrick Motorsports and Kannapolis, the hometown of racing legend Dale Earnhardt Sr.
But Cabarrus County is about more than just motorsports. Take a closer look. You will find beautiful azalea-lined streets, elegantly restored historic homes and charming Union Street in downtown Concord. Concord's Historic Courthouse is steeped in history and culture, now home to art galleries, a historical museum and a professional theatre. Pan for gold at Reed Gold Mine, the site of the first documented discovery of gold in the United States. Near Dale Earnhardt Plaza in Kannapolis, some of the world's top scientific minds are hard at work at the North Carolina Research Center. Their innovative discoveries will change the way the world views health, nutrition and wellness.
It seems like a paradox at first. Science and NASCAR. Race shops and art galleries. History and shopping malls. We may talk slow but we like our cars fast. To some, it's like mixing motor oil and water. But to the people who call Cabarrus County home and the millions of visitors who return year after year, it's a match made in heaven. So go ahead, make yourself at home. Get to know the many sides of Cabarrus County, where class meets country and the "wine-and-cheese” crowd still knows how to cheer on their favorite drivers come race day.
