CONCORD, N.C. -- NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. was on hand Tuesday as officials at Charlotte Motor Speedway unveiled the world's largest high-definition video board.

The screen is centered along the backstretch of the speedway between turns 2 and 3, across from the start/finish line.

Panasonic created and designed the 200-foot wide, 80-foot tall screen. The size of the board surpasses the massive video screen that hangs inside Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

According to Charlotte Motor Speedway, fans seated throughout the front stretch from turn 4 to turn 1 will have clear viewing angles of instant replays, leader board updates and interactive entertainment displayed in 720p high-definition visuals.

Fans will get the first look at the screen during the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 21.
