Have you always wanted to live your life like Ricky Bobby? This might be your best chance yet.
This piece of comedy movie/NASCAR lore is up for purchase for the low, low price of $10 million dollars. From the looks of the inside of the house and the property surrounding the home, I’d say it is worth around $9 million dollars. The home owners are simply adding on the “Ricky Bobby” tax to the price.
The home, which is located in Cornelius, North Carolina, played a large role in many famous scenes of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006).
If you wanted to recreate the iconic dinner scene and prepare an intricate dinner of KFC, Taco Bell and Dominos Pizza, then “pray to Baby Jesus,” your dreams are within reach for the right price.
The real estate site the home is posted on gives all the details of the Lake Norman waterfront property. The 12,000 square foot house boasts 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a pool, and two boat docks on the water, all tucked away in a private gated community.
The price of the home comes with peace of mind at least. With the house sitting within a private community, all the die hard Ricky Bobby fans wanting a picture of the “Bobby Household” will be stopped at the gate.

Usually seeing the words “recently renovated” on a house listing raises the price, but if the home owners were smart, they would have left it as it was. Some will be disappointed to know that parts of the house now look nothing like they did in the movie, but you would still rest easy knowing Ricky Bobby, Cal Naughton Jr., and Walker and Texas Ranger once walked the halls of the home.
Speaking of walking the halls, I wonder if there is any legitimacy to John C. Reilly’s character hearing ghosts within the estate when he moved in with Ricky Bobby’s wife. Hopefully there aren’t any ghosts whispering “get out,” like they did in the movie.
Better get the “slingshot engaged” if you are wanting to lock down this piece of movie history. Some people have a cool collector’s item or movie relic to act as a conversation piece, but imagine your whole house being a conversation starter.
“Welcome in to Ricky Bobby’s former house, shake and bake and make yourself at home.”
Anyways, if you are actually interested in the North Carolina home, you better act fast.
Put in an offer as early as you can because remember:
“If you ain’t first, you’re last.”
