For the upcoming GEICO 500 and Winn-Dixie 300 weekend, May 1-3, Talladega Superspeedway is adding high-definition video boards.

Some of the Sprint Vision Digital High-Definition Video Screens that line the frontstretch have increased in size while some will be permanent structures at 'Dega.

The large video boards, which were introduced a year ago as part of an International Speedway Corporation (ISC) initiative (multi-phase plans are to implement video boards at other ISC facilities over the next few years), will showcase pictures that will be bigger, brighter, crisper and clearer. In addition to the five screens on the frontstretch, a video screen will be placed along the Alabama Gang Superstretch.

Two of the video boards will now be mammoth 40’ x 80’ in size and will have permanent homes behind pit road in the tri-oval area – one atop Gatorade Victory Lane and one in front of the Media Center.

Talladega Chairman Grant Lynch said,

There is nothing like watching a race at Talladega in person. With our new and improved video boards, fans can now get the best of both worlds with an incredible, up-close view of all the happenings on the track no matter where the action is taking place. Couple this with our 21- and 22-inch comfortable fold-back seating in our grandstands, it makes for a weekend like no other.

Make sure to see them for yourself at Talladega Superspeedway on May 1-3 for the GEICO 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race and Winn-Dixie 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series event. Get your tickets here.
