“Ricky Bobby’s” North Carolina Mansion Sold To NASCAR Star
Those were exciting days when Hollywood came calling back in 2005. And who could forget the iconic scene In Talladega Nights filmed at a massive home on Lake Norman. That’s where Will Ferrell showed us how to pray and introduced us to his “smokin’ hot wife” and his kids Walker and Texas Ranger. That North Carolina “Ricky Bobby” mansion was just sold to a NASCAR star for millions.
This is pretty cool. The Cornelius mansion that made the big time in that huge cinematic hit was sold to a newly retired NASCAR driver. Kevin Harvick reportedly purchased the Lake Norman property for 6.75 million dollars according to Channel 9. Mecklenburg County real estate records confirm the house is massive. There is plenty of room to roam at 12,000 square feet. He could invite a few of us over because it has six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a four car garage and a boat dock. It’s in the gated Conner Quay neighborhood.
This will make a nice retirement home for Kevin Harvick. He ended his 23 year career in racing in early November. Wonder if he will duplicate that iconic dinner scene. You would have to wouldn’t you? Have your friends over, stream the movie and have a ball. “Ricky Bobby’s” North Carolina mansion sold to this very deserving NASCAR star.
