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.
