Speedway Motorsports Inc. and Panasonic announced a partnership to build the world’s largest high-definition video board. The Panasonic video board will be erected at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. At a length of 200 feet, standing 80 feet tall and weighing 165,000 pounds, the video board will cover 16,000 square feet and be located between Turns 2 and 3 along the backstretch of the legendary superspeedway. Fans seated throughout the frontstretch from Turn 4 to Turn 1 will have clear viewing angles of the HD video board that will feature 720P HD visuals illuminated by more than nine million light emitting diode, or LED, lamps.

In addition to the live race coverage, the video board will provide fans with interactive entertainment, continuous leaderboard updates, sponsor information and instant replays.

Construction will begin on the video board following the Oct. 13-16 Bank of America 500 Week at Charlotte Motor Speedway and is scheduled to be complete by April, 2011.
