Why Charlotte?

Motorsports

NASCAR and motorsports – it just seems fitting to establish a premier dyno racing competition here in Charlotte.

Charlotte’s airport is a major hub with hundreds of nonstop flights and over 700 arrivals and departures daily.

Ten Minutes

Our dyno testing facility is located only seven miles from your arrival gate to our front door.


Why this facility?

Walking Distance

There’s a wide range of hotels, dining options and shopping all within a five minute walk.

Downtown Charlotte

If you think this location couldn’t get any better, it does. Charlotte’s Center City and the NASCAR Hall of Fame are only a short ride on the light rail, boarding just a half block from the dyno testing location.
