Michigan Int'l Speedway Installing New 150-Foot Infield Scoreboard

Michigan Int'l Speedway is getting an "enormous new infield scoreboard" that will stand 150-feet high and include "screens on all four sides," according to Bill Shea of CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS. The scoreboard will have video screens, which will be 12 feet high and 19 feet wide, at the bottom to "show replays and other action." Those "will be 44 feet above the ground." The new digital leaderboard "stretches 72 feet above the video screen and will totally encase all four sides." It will "show the top 15 positions" and at the bottom, the "final two positions will scroll through everybody in the race." MIS "declined to disclose the cost of the new scoreboards." The board's video system comes from Daktronics. Construction has already begun and "will be finished" before the track's first NASCAR races in June (CRAINSDETROIT.com, 4/11).
