From Phoenix on business we happened to walk into the facility and immediately we were welcomed by Dean. Such a wonderful man. Answered all our questioned and so much more. Dean went out of his way to make us feel special. Mr. Waltrip happened to be there that day and came out to greet us. He was such a nice... More

We feel MWR has a ways to go with getting the best shop. Not as clean cut as other shops but has character. MWR is fairly new and changes in the organization probably has an impact on the shop. I would not miss it but on the other hand not be hurt if I could not see it. The extra... More

I'm not a big fan of Michael Waltrip, But still decided to check out the race shop. I have heard that they charge to see the race shop, but i guess that they don't anymore. You go up stairs and to the walkway looking over the huge race shop. You can take a tour with a guide but i didn't... More

It's nice to see the entire race shop from above and great to get a little tour of the place too. Plus friendly staff!

We had a great tour of the facility with Dean. You can walk on the walkway above the shop and watch employees working on cars. It was definitely the best way to see a race shop. The only day we could go was on a Friday afternoon so it was fairly quiet, but I would go back again. The facility... More

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
