“Good tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

We did allt he shop tours this summer. This was a good stop. I was surprised to find though that this one you had to pay for some of it and part of it was free. Other than RCR I think the rest are free. It is pretty cool to walk about the gang-plank area and just look down over top of the crews working and building stuff. The pay portion of the tour was kinda neat but I would not pay for it again knowing now what it is and that I can see that at other locations for free. The girl who led our tour group though was an absolute bundle of energy! Get-er-done!!!

“fan friendly shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Heard that this shop was one of the better ones to visit, and we weren't disapointed. They designed a walkway over the whole shop so you can see into all of the different rooms. The fab shop is a seperate room out back that you visit on the tour also. When leaving one of the employees asked if we had a good time, and gave us two hats. It was probably our fault, but we misunderstood where to go for the start of the tour, and missed one tour, and had to wait an hour for the next.

“Very nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is a very nice shop to visit but the fee kind of sucks when other shops are free. It has a really nice set up and nice displays for each driver. Best part of my visit was running int Brian vickers in the parking lot and talking to him for a bit if he wasn't so cool to us I probably would of only gave this an average.

“happy to support chase contenders!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This morning while staying in the Charlotte area we headed over to MWR! Wow, what an impressive and informative place! We did the tour with Dean. He was a great guide. Michael Waltrip racing is a definite race shop to visit if you are in the area. You get to see the pit crew practicing and the fabrication shop. While inside the main building you can watch them working on the cars for up coming races. So, from one race fan to another. Go for a tour!
