Shop Tour: Penske Racing

31676Jpg
For the next eight weeks RacingOne is giving the fans a sneak peek at the must see NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series race shops to visit in North Carolina through articles, photos and video podcasts.

RacingOne kicks off this special series with a trip to the enormous Penske Racing shop in Mooresville, home of Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman.

Penske Racing, located in the Mooresville Business Park, is housed in the old Matsushita Compressor Corp. of America factory. The 424,697 square foot state-of-the-art facility, which debuted in 2005, comes complete with a 138-seat cafeteria, one-mile nature trail, two baseball fields, 150-seat auditorium and nine conference rooms.

Newman's ALLTEL, Busch's Miller Lite and Penske Racing's Busch Series team occupy 240,781 square feet of the building.

Fans that visit Penske Racing are first greeted by a 4,986-square-foot gift shop containing show cars and viewing windows of the race shop. To get a better view, people can move up a floor and look down over the team members working on the cars from a 300-foot fan walk.

Another fan favorite at the shop is the 1000 linear feet of large Penske Racing history graphics on the wall, which displays everything from the 1973 American Motors Matador that Mark Donohue drove to Penske's first win to the current cars of the Penske stable.

The race shop also houses Penske's American Le Mans Series Porsches and will soon hold the IRL IndyCar Series teams.

Additional information on Penske Racing, including directions and contact info is located below.
