FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Texas Motor Speedway has unveiled the world’s largest high-definition video board, a nearly half-acre display.

Speedway president Eddie Gossage called the board the “ultimate fan amenity” and said it lives up to the adage that everything is bigger in Texas.

Dubbed “Big Hoss TV,” the screen is 218 feet wide and about 95 feet high. It is about 125 feet above ground level in the middle of the backstretch at the 1 1/2-mile track.

Track officials debuted the screen with a free public event Wednesday night that included showing the new episode of “Duck Dynasty.”

The new title sponsor of the NASCAR Sprint Cup spring race at Texas is Duck Commander, the brand of best-selling duck calls and Robertson family-owned company featured on the A&E show.
