Dale Earnhardt Jr. took the world's largest high definition television for a spin at Charlotte Motor Speedway by taking virtual laps around the legendary 1.5-mile track using an iRacing simulation. The 332-and-a-half-ton structure is the largest HDTV in the world. The 158 panels that make up the face of the television's screen will be illuminated by nine million LED lamps during select events at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The public debut of the world's largest HDTV will take place Saturday, May 21, under the lights during NASCAR's Sprint Cup All-Star race. The screen is centered along the backstretch between Turns 2 and 3, across from the start/finish line.
