With its 2.5-mile triangular layout, sight lines around Pocono Raceway are already very good.
But watching a race at the Tricky Triangle is going to get even better, as racetrack officials announced Friday that two new video screen towers will soon be installed at the Long Pond, Pa., track.
Each tower, which will stand on either end of pit road, will measure 60 feet high and will contain two high-definition video screens in each tower that will measure 24.15 feet high and 30.45 feet wide.
The screens, according to a media release, “will feature two high-definition quality video screens to provide all fans with new visuals of live action, entertainment, real-time statistics, and fan engagement.”
The new towers are being designed, engineered, installed and operated by ANC Sports Enterprises, LLC, which recently designed and integrated the Cleveland Cavaliers scoreboard and the Seattle Mariners’ high definition video board.
Pocono will be the first NASCAR track to partner with ANC.
“Our fans are racing fanatics and the video displays will provide new views of the race and leaderboard information which previously were not available,” track president and CEO Brandon Igdalsky said in a media release. “Additionally, ANC’s technology will enable unique opportunities such as fan engagement and dynamic entertainment.”
The new screens will be installed and operational for the upcoming Pennsylvania 400, July 31- August 2.
