yes, corner working at MSRH or TWS (Texas World Speedway) is good, they are the two closest tracks..
Corner working for the CMRA is a great way to spend a weekend. If you enjoy lots of action, great racing, and fun people, we have a spot for YOU!
A typical day starts at 6:30 am at corner worker check-in. This is where we get you signed in, assigned a corner, a radio, t-shirt, and the necessities you will need throughout the day. Around 7:15 am, all of the corner workers will have a short meeting to go over procedures, flags, and equipment operation and answer any questions you might have. By 7:45 am we will truck all corner workers to their corner. On occasion we allow you to drive your vehicle, weather conditions and safety permitting. The race day starts with practice around 8:15 am, and cannot begin until all corner workers are in place, so please come prepared. Throughout the day you will communicate with Race Control about “events” in your corner and assist racers. Depending on the day you work, the schedule will vary, but generally speaking lunch is at 12:00 pm (provided by the club) and the day doesn’t end until sunset.
What We Provide:
• $60.00 per day
• Free Gate Entry (for each day worked)
• A Great Experience!
also, you can get many good action photos of the racers
Lots of fun, great people involved with the CMRA.

I think the pay out is on race weekends, not track days.
Most track orgs have a photographer. If you're on a corner and worried about taking pictures I'm sure you'd be warned not to do so. Especially if you miss a wreck because you're taking pictures.

The 60 bucks the CMRA offers are only for the dates when the CMRA is managing the event. Sometimes they would host the Friday practices (to my knowledge it is only at Hallet and MSRH).
Usually though, LSTD holds the Friday practice before the race weekend. In such weekends, you would have to talk to someone from LSTD management to discuss CW, as the CMRA is not involved with them.
