We want our LED TV! NASCAR premiered the world’s largest LED TV at the NASCAR All-Star Race on May 21st at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The display stands 110 ft. above the race track centered along the backstretch giving the crowd a great view of the racing action. It took Panasonic 11,000 man hours over four months to build the 16,000-square-foot screen using 158 panels made with LEDs. The 332-and-a-half-ton structure is the largest HDTV in the world. The screen is made up of 158 panels illuminated by nine million LED lamps.
Dale Earnhardt Jr., NASCAR’s most popular driver, took the HDTV for a test drive that showed him taking virtual laps around the legendary 1.5-mile track using an iRacing simulation. Click this link for the video.
