CORNELIUS, N.C. — Michael Waltrip Racing will hold a Fan Fest at its Cornelius, N.C. race shop on Wed. May 21, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Fans may tour the shop, get autographs from MWR drivers and Miss Sprint Cup, enjoy sponsor displays, music by country music star Tim Dugger, free food and drinks.
“We’ve opened our shop up just about every year for the race fans coming to Charlotte and we’ve received a 100 percent approval rating from all our visitors,” said Waltrip. “We have lots of fun, meet with the fans and talk racing. We’ll give you access to a NASCAR Sprint Cup race shop that few folks ever get to enjoy.”
Fans will be allowed access to the shop floor Wednesday for an up close view of the team’s Toyotas as it prepares for the racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Legendary gas man Danny "Chocolate" Myers and veteran broadcaster Jim Noble will bring their Sirius-XM Radio show “Tradin Paint” to the open house broadcasting from MWR.
MWR is at 20310 Chartwell Center Drive off exit 28 on I-77 in Cornelius, N.C. about 15 miles north of Charlotte, N.C. The race shop is open to the public throughout the year.
