Being from India, I do not follow NASCAR. Formula 1 and MOTOGP is more my thing. But when I visited Cornelius recently, I heard about Michael Waltrip Racing on trip advisor and decided to go check it out for myself. It was totally worth my time. You get to have a tour of the entire facility with certain parts being... More

We've been a couple of times with friends from Ohio who love NASCAR and with the Step Daughter and her family from PA. First time we went was when Micheal opened his shop a number of years ago but have been back probably six of seven times since. The most recent was during Speed Week prior to the Coca Cola... More

This was a great place to visit. We were greeted at the door, and everyone we met was pleasant & helpful. There is a walkway above the work areas, so we could see the cars and parts they were working on. We also went on a walking tour where we were able to see in the second building where they... More

My husband and I visited MWR this week. WOW,what an experience. Great access and views from the overhead area. Best part was the tour of the haulers,fab shop and the area where they train the pit crews. MWR is the only shop that gives these tours.There was a training session in progress and it was amazing to watch. Our tour... More

I had no idea this was all here, what a great place. It is my favorite of all the race shops, you walk up to a second level where the store is located. From there you have great views of different shop sections where they do the work. Keep walking and you get to a second story cat-walk that does... More

Had a great time. Great overall experience. Plenty of excellent shop and floor views along with an exceptional guided tour of the haulers, chassis shop and pit training area. The race shop store was very nice with some exceptional values. Easy access even for my 40' MH and towed vehicle, less than 1/2 mile off I-77

This was the best Race Shop experience of the group. We visited Stewart-Haas, Gibbs, KBM & MWR and by far MWR gave the fans the greatest access and views into what Race Shops are all about. I am a Stewart fan, so just goes to show you how great the access at MWR is. There is an open air overhead... More

Probably the best race shop in the area for really getting to see all the work that goes into the cars. Great views of the shop areas and you can even take a tour which is awesome. Love this race shop. Even if you are not one of their fans you will really get a lot out of visiting this... More

My wife and I drove down to Mooresville from Toronto Canada. Our vacation was primarily to see the several NASCAR shops in the area. We stayed at the Wingate Hotel, Mooresville NC Each team shop is generally 20 minutes from this location. The best by far to visit is the MWR Racing (Micheal Waltrip's Raceworld) located at: 20310 Chartwell Center... More

As a lifelong NASCAR fan once I found out I was staying within 5 miles of the MWR shop I knew I had to stop in. This place was easy to find, had plenty of parking, and every single person I met was friendly and helpful. My son and I really enjoyed the catwalk over the shop floor allowing a... More
