The Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series are ready for the debut of “Big Hoss” TV – the biggest HD video screen in the world – and for this weekend’s Duck Commander 500 and O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas Motor Speedway. There will be four days of racing this spring – Thursday through Sunday, April 3-6 – as the Sprint Cup Series race shifted from its usual Saturday night slot in Ft.
