Racing arena boasts LED scoreboards
An LED scoreboard unveiled at a US car track aims to update visitors on the progress of races.
Roger Curtis, president of Michigan International Speedway, recently revealed how the track has seen a host of improvements to increase spectators' experience at the venue.
In addition, Mr Curtis explained that some of the renovations have helped save the arena money, which has proved useful as the global economy slows.
The new LED scoreboard provides instant updates on the motorists' progress as they compete in National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (Nascar) events.
"We have installed a new, state-of-the-art sound system and built an LED scoreboard to make the races more informative, fun and interactive," Mr Curtis told Nascar.
The arena also erected LED signs to direct visitors around the venue and seating was replaced.
In other news, a new scoreboard was recently unveiled at Gesa Stadium, home to baseball team the Tri-City Dust Devils.
