Brandon at the Dickie's 500

Brandon at the Dickie's 500

Over the last several years I’ve had the great fortune and great fun of making several sports road trips with my son, Brandon. We’ve attended a few out of state football games and, pictured here, the Dicke’s 500 NASCAR race at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas.

Brandon and I drove to Fort Worth and got a motel room, watched LSU down Alabama in football and after a brief visit that night to the race track to “look around” we got a good night’s rest. We arose the next morning early, had a large, unhealthy breakfast and made it to the racetrack before sunrise.

After spending the day taking in the NASCAR experience outside the track we enjoyed the race and this picture was taken at the very end of our day with the race logo in the background. Neither of us had ever been to a NASCAR race and it was a time I’ll never forget experiencing it for the first time with Brandon – a devout race fan.

We’re making plans to attend this year’s race so hopefully this won’t be the last picture this year you’ll see of the Texas Motor Speedway.
