When radio talk show hosts Buck Sexton and Clay Travis make their June 21 debut, taking over Rush Limbaugh’s noon-3 p.m. timeslot, they won’t be heard on the state’s biggest station, WTIC- AM1080.

WTIC aired Rush, but it won’t air a two-guy show claiming to take conservative radio to the next level.

WTIC will announce its plans later this month.

The show could still end in the Hartford market – WDRC-AM1360 and WPOP-AM1410 are talk stations.

But it won’t be on the WTIC. The Sexton-Travis show is syndicated by Premiere Networks, which is owned by iHeart Radio, which has more stations than any other group.

There is at least one obstacle, however.

The parking lot at Stafford Motor Speedway was filled Monday afternoon.

The vehicles came not from racing fans, but from CBS Sports.

The network is already preparing for a national television broadcast on Saturday at 8 p.m. – the inaugural run of the SRX series. SRX stands for Superstar Racing Experience and it comes with stars like Tony Stewart, Bill Elliott, Bobby LaBonte, Tony Kanan, Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves and Marco Andretti. The series was created by Stewart and former crew chief and TV commentator Ray Everham, who are confident racing fans will have an appetite for half-mile tracks and 100-lap races, at location of NASCAR long events.

Apparently, CBS takes this production seriously. The control truck has a large “SEC” on it – the same equipment used for CBS’s coverage of Southeastern Conference college football.

Fans have already responded – a sold-out crowd will be watching Stewart and friends.

The crowd, however, is only part of the story. TV audience size will be a bigger story. Here is the competition for Saturday at 8 p.m.:

WVIT-TV30 and NBC have the US Olympic trials for diving.

WTIC-TV61 and Fox have a baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals — a rivalry that’s huge in the Midwest.

ABC and WTNH-TV8 will show the NBA playoff game between the Utah Jazz and the LA Clippers.

ESPN has UFC preliminaries on its card while ESPN2 has the NCAA baseball tournament.

It may take a while for the series to get noticed, but if the SRX race has decent viewership numbers, given the competition, the six-race series could be a solid summer lineup.

CBS is all in, judging by the size of its production, and the fans are in on it too.

Now it’s up to the drivers to put on the show.

Do you think the Goodyear Blimp is doing anything on Saturday night?

The TVline website conducted a very interesting poll last week – which deleted series will be missed the most.

Leading the poll was the Fox series, “The Prodigal Son”, which received 32% of the vote.

The fact that it ended in a cliffhanger – which will never be resolved – only made fans even angrier.

Number 2 on the list was CBS courtroom drama “All Rise,” which garnered 20% of the vote.

The reason fans may have voted for “All Rise” is because of how strong the first season was. The quality went down slightly in Season 2.

The No. 3 show on the list was ABC’s “Rebel,” which garnered 14% of the vote. The show didn’t last that long, but long enough to attract fans.
