NASCAR Crew Chief Chad Knaus Selling $3.1M Charlotte Mansion

Longtime NASCAR crew chief Chad Knaus just put his Tudor mansion up for sale, and the lovely home is worthy of way more than a quick pit stop.

Knaus is the crew chief for the No. 48 car on the Sprint Cup Series driven by Jimmie Johnson and was a member of five consecutive championship teams from 2006-2010. The pit-stop pro recently married Brooke Werner, former Miss Sprint Cup, but we doubt this is a case of a former bachelor selling his bachelor pad.

After all, now listed for $3.1 million, the impressive 7,897-square-foot home in Cornelius (right in the heart of North Carolina's NASCAR country) sports five bedrooms and six full baths -- way more than a bachelor would ever require.

The gated home has a semi-open floor plan on the first floor, with a massive foyer, high-end kitchen, living space, and butler's pantry, to name a few. But we're drooling over the study with its tray ceilings, wood-paneled walls, and patio access.

Upstairs, the master suite has a large bath with a soaking tub and a mega-sized walk-in closet with dressing area. In this house, you won't be awkwardly trying to put on your pants in a dark and tiny closet!

Befitting a garage genius responsible for keeping cars in tune, there are plenty of spots to unwind after a day at the track, including a bar area, media room, large wine cellar, and large outdoor space with a truly gorgeous view.
