FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Texas Motor Speedway is planning to have the world's largest highest-definition video board in place before the NASCAR Sprint Cup race there next spring.
TMS officials announced plans Monday night for the nearly half-acre display board dubbed ``Big Hoss TV.'' The screen will be 218 feet wide and about 95 feet high, and placed about 125 feet above ground level in the middle of the backstretch at the 1 1/2-mile track.
Construction of the 108-ton board will begin after the Sprint Cup race in November, and is scheduled for completion in March.
The board will be larger than the 200-foot-wide, 80-foot-tall screen at Charlotte Motor Speedway, another Bruton Smith-owned track that currently has the biggest such screen. Both video boards are a partnership with Panasonic.
