Texas Motor Speedway Unveils "Big Hoss TV," The World's Largest HD Video Board
Published March 20, 2014
EVERYTHING IS BIGGER IN TEXAS: SMI Chair Bruton Smith, who owns the track, said of Gossage, "Under Eddie's persistence, he wanted to outdo another TV screen here in Texas. I finally surrendered." In Ft. Worth, Mac Engel writes Gossage "fully expects to attract other events, whether it’s automobile or trade shows, to his track with this massive TV set" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 3/20). Gossage said of drivers being distracted by the video board, "I don't think it’s going to be a problem for any of them. I think they're quite used to it there in Charlotte and more and more of these are going to come on-board at NASCAR tracks" ("NASCAR Now," ESPN2, 3/20).
