Moving Simplified says "Welcome to 'Race City, U.S.A.' Mooresville, NC!" Mooresville is located in southern Iredell County in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. The Town’s location between the Charlotte metropolitan area and the city of Statesville, the County seat, has created diversified employment opportunities. The Town is the municipal center of the Mooresville-South Iredell region, an area that boasts Lake Norman, the state’s largest man-made lake by surface area with 520 miles of shoreline!
Mooresville's slogan is "Race City, U.S.A." because it is home to so many NASCAR businesses and race teams as well as being adjacent to Lowe's Motor Speedway.
