”˜BIG HOSS TV’ ULTIMATE DRIVE-IN SERIES KICKS OFF SATURDAY NIGHT WITH TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON
FORT WORTH, Texas (June 16, 2015) – Speedway Children’s Charities-Texas Chapter will give new meaning to its “big” summer events as the organization turns to the Guinness World Records’ largest, high-definition LED video board to assist with fundraising to benefit children in North Texas.
“Big Hoss TV” will serve as the screen for Speedway Children’s Charities Ultimate Drive-In Series presented by Red Hot & Blue, which begins 8 p.m. CT Saturday with the showing of Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011).
This weekend’s showing of Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the first of a three-part summer series that includes Oscar-nominated American Sniper (Saturday, July 11) and the Disney Pixar animated classic Cars (Saturday, Aug. 8).
Fans will be treated to the summer series movies on a visually stunning 218-foot wide by 94.6-foot tall video board perched 12 stories high along the backstretch of Texas Motor Speedway. “Big Hoss TV”, which is 79 percent larger than the video board at AT&T Stadium, consists of nearly 4.8 million pixels and displays 281 trillion colors.
Admission for Speedway Children’s Charities “Big Hoss TV” Ultimate Drive-In Series presented by Red Hot & Blue is $20 per carload. Each week the feature film will begin at 8 p.m. and the South Tunnel will open at 6:30 p.m. to allow moviegoers access to the infield drive-in parking area. Attendees can access the South Tunnel directly by turning onto Allison Way off State Highway 114 that runs directly in front of the facility.
Coolers for food and beverage are permitted with admission. Levy Restaurants also will have concession stands open on site. Those attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs for seating outside of their vehicle.
