Now that NASCAR star Kurt Busch has sped away from the Mooresville, NC, estate known as Chateau de Busch, the driver has listed an additional 138 acres for sale down the road. The huge parcel is available for $7,626,300.
While some structures dot the landscape, the property is being sold strictly for its land value. The acreage is “serene wooded and pasture property,” the listing notes. The land affords “boundless opportunity for development in the sought-after Mooresville area.”
“This land is strategically placed right within 20 or 30 minutes of everything,” says co-listing agent Kelly Myers. “It’s the perfect canvas for any developer’s vision of new, single-family residential, or even the rarely found estate-sized lots for unique homes.”

Busch has deep ties to the area. He purchased a nearby chateau-style retreat in 2013 for $3.29 million. In 2018, he listed the lakefront home for $3.95 million. The Mooresville mansion was eventually sold for $3.6 million.
In a 2015 YouTube video for his sponsor, Monster Energy, the professional driver showed off Chateau de Busch. The huge home included a bar, game room, media room, and trophy room. Naturally, a Monster Energy drink was in the fridge.
Now that the keys to his kingdom have been passed on, the 40-year-old looks to be shifting gears to an even larger North Carolina deal. But this isn’t the first time the professional racer has tried his hand at selling land. In 2016, the Las Vegas native sought to sell an undeveloped, quarter-acre, oceanfront lot for $1.5 million. That plot is currently off the market.
At the same time, Busch was also selling a penthouse at the Residences at the Westin Virginia Beach Town Center. He purchased the three-bedroom, 3.5-bath unit in 2009 for a whopping $2.81 million. He later reduced the price to $1.95 million. Last year he relisted it at $999,999, and it was eventually sold for $920,000.
Busch, a 30-time NASCAR race winner, competes full time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, where he’s competed in 654 races over 20 years. Along with being the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series champion in 2004, he won the Daytona 500 in 2017.
