NASCAR fans have a place to revisit some of the finest moments in auto racing history at The Curb Museum for Motorsports and Music.

Culinary Delights

To say that there is an abundance of delicious food choices in Kannapolis is no exaggeration. Get out of your weekday morning slump with breakfast at Forty-Six. The menu has options for vegetarians and gluten-free foods along with standard fare such as frittatas. For a quick, tasty sandwich, visit Sweet Pickle Bakery & Delicatessen. The club sandwiches are stacked high, and the oatmeal pie alone is worth the visit. If it is barbecue you want, have a seat at Varsity Bar-B-Q & Ice Cream. One plate piled with pulled pork, hushpuppies, coleslaw, and crinkle-cut fries later, and you will definitely be back.
