Online Video Shows Progress Of ‘Big Hoss TV’

FORT WORTH (KRLD) — Construction on the world’s largest high definition video screen is attracting all kinds of attention at Texas Motor Speedway.

The video billboard, known as “Big Hoss TV”, has a website where fans can track progress on construction of the the 12-story, 218-foot wide screen. Viewers — online and from the air — can see the enormous steel-beam skeleton being built over the next three weeks.

“Pilots that are making an approach from the west into DFW will point out to passengers, that if you look off to the right side of your airplane, you’ll see Big Hoss — the world’s largest television screen,” said Eddie Gossage, President of Texas Motor Speedway.

Gossage says that once the frame is in place, the work will begin on installing over 14 million LED lamps.

The project is scheduled to finish on March 1, with the official unveiling during the Texas 500 NASCAR doubleheader race week, April 3-6.
