The world’s largest TV, Texas Motor Speedway’s “Big Hoss,” is about to get even bigger.
The aptly named “Big Hoss” will receive an additional 2,071 square feet of high-definition screen across its lower portion, Texas Motor Speedway announced Monday. The ribbon-like scoreboard will allow fans to follow the lap count and running order at NASCAR and INDYCAR events, replacing the towering scoring pylons at both ends of the speedway.
With the new 218-foot-long scoreboard, the already Guinness World Record holding “Big Hoss” will measure 22,708 square feet, or nearly half an acre, in size. In comparison, Dallas-Fort Worth’s other famously large screen at AT&T Stadium in Arlington can only be seen in an 11,520 foot area.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Panasonic, which built the existing TV screen in 2014, will construct the new scoreboard following this weekend’s Firestone 600 INDYCAR/NASCAR double-header weekend.
The project is expected to take three weeks and the scoreboard will debut at the AAA Texas 500 NASCAR triple header on Nov. 3.
