TRG Motorsports is the latest professional racing operation to open in Lakeside Business Park off Interstate 77 Exit 36.
TRG, which stands for The Racers Group, bought and moved into the former Robert Yates Racing building around the holidays and is still unpacking, TRG spokesman Jim Thomas said this morning.
Based in Petaluma, Calif., TRG fields drivers in various professional racing circuits and will run its NASCAR Truck Series team out of the former Yates complex on Rolling Hill Road.
TRG bought Darrell Waltrip's truck series team last year and competed in three races with driver Andy Lally. TRG's No. 7 Chevrolet Silverado truck tested second-fastest in testing at Daytona International Speedway on Friday.
Never miss a local story.
Kevin and Debra Buckler founded TRG in 1994 in Monterey, Calif., and still own the company.
TRG's Mooresville location is so new it's not yet open to the public, Thomas said.
