Hamburger helper

Chef Russ Friedrich prepares hamburgers at Texas Motor Speedway, Fort Worth, prior to one of the Busch Series O’Reilly 300 NASCAR races last weekend. It is a scene repeated throughout the motor home compound on NASCAR weekends. With flags flying, steaks cooking, beer flowing, it is a colorful place to be.

Friedrich and wife Dr. Marsha Friedrich take their motor home for the three weekends each year and ask friends to share the experience with them. This is our second trip — hubby Paul Schuetze and me — with them and we’ve turned into the biggest fans! Clayton and Angela Brakeville joined us this year. There is a place for motor homes, but also a campground for primitive campers.

There is even a Brookshire’s Campground Store with everything you need and souvenirs.

By the way, Friedrich’s name is on the Speedway’s "Hall of Fame" for he was among the first to buy season tickets the first year they were available!
