Huntersville features a great deal in recreational aspects, including being the headquarters to the NASCAR race shops dedicated to Joe Ribbs Racing, which operates three Sprint Cup Series teams. For those fond of the great outdoors, Huntersville is known as being a lake community because of its nearness to Lake Norman. Lake Norman is a man-made lake constructed by Duke Power to serve a nuclear power plant. Mountain Island Lake, located along the southwest border of Huntersville, is also a man-made lake that is now used as nearby Charlotte city's water source. Both lakes act as magnets for boaters and water-skiers alike, who come from surrounding states to enjoy Huntersville as a vacationing spot.
