Where We Are

We get asked a lot about our location. We’re about 30 minutes (depending on traffic) north of downtown Charlotte in Mooresville, which is exit 36 off I-77. From exit 36 you’ll head east on Hwy 150 (also known as East Plaza drive) for about 2 miles. The Pit Indoor Kart Racing is the large red-brick building on the right just after the Burger King (which we’ve driven though their drive-thru with a kart before :D ).
