Various dictionaries offer various definitions of the word “dedication.”
One indicates that it’s the “quality of being dedicated or committed to a task or purpose,” while another indicates that it’s “the activity of giving a lot of your energy and time to something you think is important.”
We’re fortunate at Summit Motorsports Park to be surrounded by people who show dedication, including racers who refuse to give up and race fans who routinely wait out a rain shower.
But another person who shows dedication is our official track photographer, Mike Davis of Moto Lenz.
For years, he has arrived to the track hours — and sometimes days — before an event to park his truck and trailer in a location where customers will be able to conveniently come to him.
Then, regardless of how hot it is outside or how cold it is outside, he takes his place alongside the track, with or without support from other photographers on his staff, and captures on his camera every bit of action from flying vehicles to flying fireworks.
His commitment to his craft, as well as his passion and persistence, are commendable, and our appreciation is sincere.
In recognition for his efforts, he was given the 2016 Recognition Award from Summit Motorsports Park during the 43rd Accel Banquet of Champions, Jan. 14, 2017 at Sawmill Creek Resort in Huron, Ohio.
