Cabarrus County

Nestled in the gently rolling countryside of the Carolina Piedmont, Cabarrus County is located in south-central North Carolina just a half-hour northeast of the burgeoning City of Charlotte. The region is home to more than 1.8 million people and includes the communities of Concord, Kannapolis, Harrisburg, Mt. Pleasant and Midland.

Cabarrus County is experiencing an explosion of growth in population and development with new hotels, attractions and venues on the horizon. Underway in Kannapolis is construction of the new North Carolina Research Campus — a Dole/NC State Institute for Advanced Fruit and Vegetable Science.

Cabarrus County is home to legendary Lowe’s Motor Speedway and to an exciting racing heritage. Not only was the first official race held here 53 years ago, but this is the greatest concentration of NASCAR teams. In fact, over 90% are in Cabarrus County or nearby, and NASCAR fans come here all year round to tour the race shops and see what goes on behind the scenes in the fastest growing sport in the country.

And the fun never stops in the Racing Side of Charlotte. Visitors shop at Concord Mills (North Carolina’s most popular visitor attraction) and pan for gold at Reed Gold Mine (the site of the nation’s first gold discovery in 1799). They visit landmarks relating to NASCAR icon Dale Earnhardt on The Dale Trail in Kannapolis, his hometown. NASCAR fans of all ages put pedal to metal at NASCAR SpeedPark or ride shotgun in a NASCAR-style stockcar around the track at Lowe’s Motor Speedway at speeds up to 165 miles per hour.
