Football fans tend to get all the Jumbotron love in the U.S. with lots of stadiums around the country boasting gigantic screens to watch the action on in the stadium. None of those video screens will compare to what Charlotte Motor Speedway will have in place come April of 2011.
Panasonic is breaking ground on construction of the world’s largest video board at the racetrack. The massive screen will weigh 165,000 pounds and cover an area of 16,000 square feet. The screen will have 720p resolution with the image made up with 9 million LEDs.
The gigantic screen will measure 200-feet wide by 80-feet tall and sit near turns two and three along the back of the track. The placement makes it ideal for fans watching from the Turn four to Turn one area of the track. I wonder if they will play any video games on it as they did at Cowboys Stadium when its screen was being installed.
