Doug Herbert Plans to Move His Performance Center to Lincolnton, N.C.
New Site Boasts 100,000 Square Feet, 70,000 More Than Current Location

CHERRYVILLE, N.C., June 29 - Businessman Doug Herbert is moving his Doug Herbert Performance Center into a 100,000-square foot building in Lincolnton, N.C., in July, more than tripling the size of his current location.

"This is a good time for the Doug Herbert Performance Center and our Snap-on Racing Top Fuel team," said Herbert. "It's great to be able to expand our parts warehouse, have a new 10,000-square foot showroom and a new 30,000-square foot shop for our drag racing operation, all under one roof.

"While relocating is never much fun, once we're in our new facility we'll be able to display more of the parts we carry from all our manufacturers in our new showroom," Herbert continued. "That will allow our customers to see more of what we have to offer."

Herbert also plans to open a racing museum he hopes will raise drag racing awareness in North Carolina, the heart of stock car racing.

"I want my new shop to be a destination for our customers and fans, and to help show new fans some racing history with a drag racing museum," said Herbert. "I still have the car that was the second to run over 300 mph back in 1993 and I'm planning to restore it the way it was when it made that pass. In addition, I have a few other nostalgia race cars that will be very interesting for people to see."
