Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage is known for doing things in a Texas-sized way.

So laying down fresh rubber on his newly reconfigured and repaved 1.5-mile track was no exception.

On Tuesday, TMS unveiled the "Texas Tire Monster" used to put down as much rubber as possible before the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series rolls into town for the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 (April 9, 1:30 p.m. ET, FOX).
