Cabarrus County

Cabarrus County may be known as “Where Racing Lives,” but we’re so much more than motorsports. We have a little something for everyone, including home-cooked BBQ, historic Reed Gold Mine, the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame, and a whiskey distillery located in a former prison.

And for the motorsports fans? We have it all, including Charlotte Motor Speedway, zMAX Dragway, and a self-guided tour of racing legend Dale Earnhardt Sr.’s hometown. You could say we have racing in our DNA, as you can find it scattered throughout our county in Concord, Harrisburg, Kannapolis, Midland, and Mount Pleasant. So what are you waiting for? Make Cabarrus County your next weekend getaway or family vacation destination. (
