NTPA Video Scoreboards

The National Tractor Pullers Association is happy to have two video scoreboard units available to use, covering a large portion of our National events. The units provide an enhanced fan experence at our events while gaining additional local and national sponsor information. Both units provide the ability to display video feeds and send audio to the event PA system.

14' x 19' Video Scoreboard

Scoreboard 44 1

In 2013, the National Tractor Pullers Association introduced the motorsport’s largest Video Scoreboard in the United States. The portable big screen is 14 feet tall by 19 feet wide and displays in high definition (15 mm pixel spacing). The trailer is 45 feet long, and the screen can be rotated 360 degrees to allow flexibility in placement relative to the pulling track and spectator seating areas. A 25-kW generator powers the entire trailer, making the unit self-sufficient during the event.

Before each session of pulling starts, the entire screen is used for sponsors and other information as a “Pre-Show,” allowing 30-second TV-type ads to be played, with sound going to the PA system.

As each contestant arrives at the starting line, the names of the driver and vehicle are shown as a bright, clear graphics over the live video. Cameras follow the action down the track. Once the distance has been measured, it is overlaid along with the competitor’s current placing atop an instant replay of the run. Then, the ticker resumes, having been updated with the new distance. Importantly, local and national sponsors are shown the entire time via the use of a ribbon banner at the bottom quarter of the screen. (See below for size and recommendations.)

The massive, colorful board provides a unique opportunity to inform and entertain fans between hooks as well. A scrolling ticker displays current class standings (including the leading distance) and a list of upcoming competitors or pull-off qualifiers, while ribbon banners promote sponsors. And throughout, the top two thirds of the screen can be dedicated to whatever action the trackside cameras can observe: live crowd shots, driver interviews, and trophy presentations.

This trailer is also used in the production of broadcasts that are streamed live by promoter request. Everything shown on the screen can be seen live at home on a pay-per-view basis at NTPAPULL.com/LIVE.

Now entering its fourth season on the road, the NTPA Video Scoreboard has earned a reputation for adding both flair and professionalism to truck and tractor pulling events across the country.
