The Daytona 500 Is Revving Up: Let’s Take a Spin Through the Mansions of NASCAR’s Biggest Stars

One particular area has been a magnet for drivers past and present: Lake Norman. The large body of water just north of Charlotte offers a variety of luxury home options right on the water. For drivers who enjoy an adrenaline rush on the track, captaining a boat on the placid waters away from the raceway is a welcome respite.

Want to take a spin through the top drivers’ awe-inspiring homes? We started at the top with last year’s winner and went in order of 2023 finish. Start your engines!

Ryan Blaney

The 2023 NASCAR champ upgraded—and downsized—his living situation in 2020.

Four years ago, Blaney splurged on a five-bedroom, 4,688-square-foot home in Mooresville, NC. The place was listed for $1,649,000, but Blaney managed to squeak out a tiny discount and snag the place for $1.6 million.

Done up in a modern farmhouse style, the elegant residence offers a spacious backyard highlighted by a private courtyard, barn, and koi pond. And for anyone daring enough to roll up on Blaney’s property, be advised he keeps an arsenal at the ready inside the home.

It sits on just over 10 acres, which represents a much smaller footprint than the property Blaney sold in February 2021.

His spread in Mount Ulla, NC, spanned nearly 44 acres and featured a modern, four-bedroom home. The 30-year-old driver put that place on the market in November 2020 for $1,055,000, before selling it three months later for $802,000. Listing photos for the home from 2020 show a mix of NASCAR memorabilia and trophies on the walls.

Kyle Larson

We peeked at the properties of last season’s runner-up four years ago when he was embroiled in a controversy.

At the time, he was suspended from NASCAR for using a racial slur—and was selling two properties in North Carolina. Now, four years later, he’s a NASCAR champion (won in 2021) and still the proud owner of one of those two Tar Heel State homes.

Purchased in 2014 for $798,000, Larson’s Mooresville home sits on a nearly 3-acre lot. Highlights include a chef’s kitchen, home theater, and wide-open living spaces. He tossed it onto the market briefly in early 2020 with a price tag of $1.25 million, but it never sold.

At the same time, Larson was also selling an unfinished home 3 miles away on the shores of Lake Norman. He purchased the land for $1.4 million in 2018 and wound up placing the unfinished mansion on the market for $5 million in May 2020. It sold a month later for $4,450,000.

A California native, Larson now makes his off-season home in Arizona. He discussed his move to the desert in 2023 in a YouTube interview.

He bought a 5,625-square-foot home in Scottsdale, AZ, for $5.6 million in November 2022. Located in a gated community, the residence features a pair of two-car garages—a must for a man who makes his living in motor sports.

Following a 2021 season in which he notched his first NASCAR Cup Series win and finished 12th overall, Bell bought himself a magnificent mansion on the waters of Lake Norman in Mooresville.

Featuring lake views from nearly every room, the six-bedroom home sold to Bell for $4 million in January 2022. It features a primary bedroom wing separated from the main house, a covered terrace out back, and a cigar lounge where victories can be celebrated.

With 16 years on the NASCAR Cup Series, the 40-year-old Keslowski is one of the grizzled vets of the circuit. He began his career in North Carolina, living in a guest house on a sizable piece of property owned by NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Named one of NASCAR’s 75 Greatest Drivers last year, Keslowski earned a salary of $9.4 million in 2023. His career earnings are somewhere north of $40 million, and he’s spent some of that money on a mansion in—you guessed it—Mooresville.

In 2016, Keslowski shelled out $4.5 million for a stately 8,135-square-foot residence on the lake’s northern shores. When the home was on the market for $4,895,000 eight years ago, it was touted as “one of the most magnificent custom homes in The Point.” A luxury country club community, The Point offers residents access to golf and amenities at Trump National Golf Club.

Wallace made the NASCAR playoffs for the first time in his career in 2023 and will look to improve upon that success in 2024.

Off the track, he keeps a more modest profile with a lovely home tucked away amid a forest in Concord, NC. Purchased for $575,000 in May 2018, Wallace’s secluded, 3-acre property features a custom-built, four-bedroom home.

In 2022, the two-time Cup winner sold his massive mansion on Lake Norman in Cornelius, NC. Offering up serious chateau vibes, the five-bedroom home landed on the market in late 2020 with an asking price of $5.5 million. The listing lingered for nearly two years, before finally selling in June 2022 at the much-reduced price of $4.3 million.

We weren’t able to discern where Logano now parks his cars every evening, but he’s been active in the arena of commercial real estate. In 2021, he bought a 3.6-acre property for $3 million in Cornelius that was previously occupied by a boat dealer. And last year, he won local approval to begin a $255 million, mixed-use development in the town of Huntersville, NC.

Kyle Busch

One of NASCAR’s most decorated drivers, Busch has 63 race wins to his name and won the entire series in 2015 and 2019.

He’s made his home in Denver, NC, on the banks of Lake Norman in a grand 15,000-square-foot mansion. Purchased for $7.5 million in 2012, the home’s sales price set a Charlotte-area record at the time. The seven-bedroom estate sits in a gated community and is highlighted by a million-dollar kitchen renovation, a primary suite with lakefront views, and a pool with a swim-up bar.

Busch put the place on the market last year with an asking price of $13 million. In October, the listing was removed, and Busch still owns the property.

Having run nearly 500 NASCAR Cup races, McDowell knows his way around the track. After bouncing around with smaller teams on the circuit, his career highlight was a win at Daytona in 2021. Off the track, he owns a custom-built home in Davidson, NC.

McDowell purchased a 2-acre plot tucked away at the end of a secluded court and had a 3,499-square-foot home built there. We don’t know much about the two-story dwelling’s interior spaces, but it offers plenty of curb appeal.

Stenhouse won the Daytona 500 last year and hopes to begin 2024 with another statement victory. Off the track, he owns a 9,986-square-foot mansion on an equally enormous, 140-acre parcel in Mooresville, NC. While his house doesn’t sit on Lake Norman, the lack of water views is trumped by the sheer size of the place. It’s also outfitted for a different type of track, with equestrian features galore.

Back in 2013, Stenhouse spent $3.8 million to acquire the massive spread. After nearly a decade of luxury living, the driver put the estate on the market in July 2022 with a $16 million asking price.

NASCAR fans were intrigued by the lavish details and clicked like crazy to get a glimpse of Stenhouse’s style. But interest in the listing didn’t translate into a buyer, and the home’s price was cut to $13 million in 2023. With no buyer willing to take the wheel, the place is now off the market with Stenhouse still the owner.

Elliott does things a little differently.

The son of NASCAR legend Bill Elliot doesn’t have a mansion on Lake Norman. He doesn’t even have a home in North Carolina. Instead, he opts to live a private life in Dawsonville, GA, where no one knows quite what he’s up to. We weren’t able to pin down an exact property for Elliott in Dawsonville, but we do know he loves his hometown.

Daniel Suarez

A native of Mexico, Suarez made his Cup debut at the 2017 Daytona 500. He’s finished in the Top 10 in nearly 60 races and won once, which made him the first Mexican-born driver to win a NASCAR Cup Series race.

In 2016, Suarez spent $465,000 on a stately brick four-bedroom home in the suburb of Huntersville, NC. The two-story home debuted on the market with a $515,000 price tag, so Suarez scored a discount.

Highlights of the home include a finished basement with a workshop area as well as a three-car garage—both appealing to a gear head.

Dillon had a rough season in 2023, finishing 29th overall. As he looks to improve and move up the standings in 2024, he doesn’t need to worry about improving his home. His nearly 14,000-square-foot mansion in Thomasville, NC, sits on more than 63 acres and is already pretty well dialed in. Dillon bought the home for $1,927,270 in May 2020.

On his Youtube channel, he offered viewers a tour of his backyard, which is nicely outfitted with a large pool, huge patio, and private pond.

Set at the end of a long driveway, Dillon’s mansion offers plenty of privacy. To ensure future seclusion, he bought an additional two-bedroom home that abuts his property for a modest $120,000 in April 2022.

Built in 1949, this three-quarter-acre lot could be used as a future guesthouse, space for storage, or an expansion possibility.

Briscoe made his Cup Series debut at Daytona in 2021 and has burned rubber in over 100 races since.

He’s won once and finished 21 times in the Top 10 over the past three seasons. In the middle of the 2022 season, Briscoe put down stakes in North Carolina.

He bought a $1.69 million home in Monroe, NC. Fronted by a private pond, Briscoe’s 16-acre spread is anchored by a 5,666-square-foot brick home. The five-bedroom residence in the prestigious Farms at Willoughby community is bright, light, and spacious. Residents in the community have access to a number of equestrian-related amenities, including 4 miles of horseback-riding trails.
