Charlotte to build world's largest video board
Charlotte Motor Speedway plans to install the world's largest HD video board in time for next year's Coca-Cola 600.
The screen will be 200 feet wide, 80 feet tall and weigh more than 165,000 pounds. That size will make it larger than the $40 million screen at Cowboys Stadium in Texas, which is currently billed as the world's largest.
Track owner Bruton Smith would not reveal how much he is paying for the screen.
The video board is a partnership with Panasonic, which signed on as the exclusive audio/video provider of the speedway.
