(CBS Local)- The Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) series is ready for its inaugural season to begin as the hours tick away for Saturday’s race at Stafford Speedway in Connecticut. Along with the introduction of a new racing series with new equipment and rules, race fans can expect some new features in the broadcast as well.

“I think what you’re going to see is access like you’ve never seen before. We’re going to be in the cockpits of the cars. We’re going to be showing the driver’s personalities behind the wheel and also away from the track. There’s going to be some views from the car that people haven’t seen before,” Pam Miller, producers for SRX Racing on CBS said. “We have two onboard cameras in every car and also drone action. We’ll have a drone that has full access. So I think race fans are going to see personality and also some great racing with some new angles for television that they haven’t seen.”

Personality has been a continued key word for everyone talking about the series this year. The driver lineup is filled with legendary names from across the motorsports world but also, importantly, filled with guys who have big personalities. Paul Tracy, who will be driving the 13 car on Saturday, has spoken previously about motorsports lacking some of that personality at the moment. Co-founder of SRX and driver Tony Stewart agreed with that sentiment.

"Here we are bringing the superstars to local tracks to where the legends were all born."

“It has got so put under the thumb of corporate America and do the right things, say the right things. That is what’s great about SRX is that you have personalities — you’ve got Paul Tracy, myself, Willy T. Ribbs. You’ve got guys like Bill Elliott, Bobby Labonte, Michael Waltrip,” Stewart said. “I don’t know how you get much more in the personality category than that. But having these guys like that that are great race car drivers and putting us all together in equal cars I think is going to be a lot of fun.”

“With Pam at the helm also telling the story of us, as well, I think that’s going to make it well rounded,” Stewart. “So I think that’s going to create a lot of excitement this weekend and for the next five weeks.”

That storytelling element will be part of the broadcasts and with local drivers in the mix getting the opportunity to go up against the legends on their home track, could provide some true underdog stories.

“Our goal with this was to do something on down the line to involve, to literally involve the grass-roots people, and the Rocky Balboa-type shot up immediately with the superstars. I think we’ve done a good job accomplishing that,” NASCAR Hall of Famer and co-founder Ray Evernham said.

The lineup for the first race has been set and the local hero to watch is Doug Coby, the six-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion and Connecticut native. Fans will get the chance to see how he and the rest of these drivers adapt to the cars they’ll be driving for the very first time on Saturday.

Police release new info on suspect wanted in brazen New York shooting; kids seen running for cover

MOUNT EDEN, Bronx (WABC) -- Police have released new information about the suspect wanted for opening fire just mere inches away from children as they ducked for safety in the Bronx.

The incident was reported around 6:45 p.m. on Thursday in front of 1551 Sheridan Ave.

The children, a 10-year-old girl and her 5-year-old brother, somehow avoided being shot as the gunman fired multiple shots on his intended target, a 24-year-old man.



The first suspect is described as a man with sunglasses who wore all black clothing. The second individual is a light-skinned male who wore a white baseball cap, a red long-sleeved shirt, and dark-colored shorts.

One of the suspects fired about a dozen shots in total.

The victim was shot three times -- once in each leg and in the lower back -- and taken to the hospital, where he is expected to survive.

The children were not physically injured.

After the shooting, the suspect got on a scooter with a second person and they both got away northbound on Sheridan Avenue.

NYPD Chief of Department Rodney Harrison said the shooting "seems like it's a gang incident, which has been plaguing NYC this year."

"I'm disgusted, I'm going to be honest with you, it's very alarming," Harrison said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
