Down south they like to do things big, and they don't come any bigger than the 80 x 200-foot HD video screen they fired up on Tuesday at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Twenty feet longer and eight feet taller than that humongous display at Cowboys Stadium, the new screen is easy to watch from the opposite end of the giant speedway complex.
Back when it was under construction, we wondered about how cool it would be to run a little gaming action on that screen, so I chuckled when I saw that Dale Earnhardt Jr christened the display by running a few laps of iRacing from across the track. They even controlled it with a suitably oversized remote.
Despite its vast size, the new screen's resolution is only 720p. Heck, my laptop has more rez than that. Those pixels must be the size of dinner plates.
If you want to see the display in action, it will get its official debut at the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 21st. Of course unless you plan on traveling to Charlotte, you'll be watching it on your puny home TV.
