INDIANAPOLIS - There's something new at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, just in time for this weekend's Brickyard 400.
The Speedway just finished installing a new state-of-the-art LED scoring pylon and unveiled it this week.
It replaces a 20-year-old pylon on the main straightaway of the two-and-a-half-mile oval.
Standing at over 92 feet, it features LED panels on all four sides.
Officials said the new pylon, which cost more than $1 million, improves messaging to fans during races and includes animation and video.
"Even fans that are a little concerned about it will find that we've done a great job of paying close attention to our tradition and it will give them something to make their experience here at the Speedway better," IMS president Doug Boles said.
Officials also said the next project is new LED video boards across the track, which they hope to have installed in time for next year's Indianapolis 500.
