Large video boards at Texas Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway have changed and enhanced the overall viewing experience for fans who attend races at those venues.
With that in mind, a new and larger Sprint Vision board made its debut this weekend at Michigan International Speedway.
While the new video board isn’t as big as its counterparts in Charlotte and Fort Worth, it is big enough for fans in the stands to get a good up-close view of what’s going on around the track and in the driver’s seat.
Plus, unlike the boards at Texas and Charlotte, the new Sprint Vision is “portable” enough that it will appear at every remaining track on the Sprint Cup schedule this season (except, of course, the two tracks with the huge boards).
The new Sprint Vision is 18 feet high by 32.4 feet wide, a significant size increase from the former version. Plus, it’s High Definition to give a crisper, clearer viewing experience, according to Sprint officials.
