Because everything’s bigger in Texas

The world’s largest HD screen is now deep in the heart of Texas.

Positioned along the backstretch of the Texas Motor Speedway outside of Fort Worth, “The Big Hoss TV” is reportedly 12 stories tall and provides 20,633.34 square feet of HD broadcasting, according to ESPN.

“To have the biggest one in the world, this is another one of those everything-is-bigger-in-Texas stories,” TMS president Eddie Gossage told the sports broadcaster.

The gargantuan monitor is set to make its high-definition, NASCAR debut during the Duck Commander 500 on April 6.

According to the designers, Big Hoss is outfitted to withstand central Texas’s temperamental climate and will be able to handle 120 m.p.h. wind gusts and hail storms. Workers tested the monitor’s resilience by reportedly hitting golf balls at the screen.
