(April 8, 2009) – Cabarrus, NC – Many attractions, including a four-lane racing event at zMAX Dragway later this month, are drawing tourists from around the country to the area near exit 49 off I-85.
Now lined with thousands of hotel rooms, the area didnt even exist just 10 years ago.
The area has continued to develop, and economic development experts said its the fastest growing exit in the country and the main artery to a lot of action.
You get Great Wolf Lodge, you get the Kannapolis Intimidators, you get Reed Gold Mine, you get Charlotte Motor Speedway, you get Concord Mills, so there is a synergy that just doesnt exist anywhere else in North Carolina on this stretch of I-85, John Cox, of the Chamber of Commerce, said.
And with edgy, crowd pleasing events, exit 49 is moving full steam ahead.
Speed Channel will shoot the Pinks All Out four-lane racing episode at zMAX Dragway on April 25, 2009. Tickets are still available for the race event by calling (800) 455-3267.
