Outside Groove, a division of Spirited Boldness, Inc., is proud to announce the addition of award-winning journalist Mike Adaskaveg as its Director of Photography.
This year marks Adaskaveg’s 50th anniversary covering motorsports. He started in 1970, working for track photographer Lloyd Burnham at Stafford Motor Speedway in Connecticut. Since then, he’s been a columnist, writer, and photographer, in racing and in mainstream media, for several outlets, including the Journal Inquirer, Boston Herald, Stock Car Racing, and Speedway Illustrated.
Among Adaskaveg’s many awards are a third-place in the Science & Technology portion of the 2000 World Press Photo contest, the 1992 Eastern Motorsport Press Association (EMPA) Ace Lane Photographer of the Year, and the 2019 National Motorsports Press Association (NMPA) George Cunningham Writer of the Year.
“Creative, insightful, relevant — we seek those three elements with everything we do,” said J.A. Ackley, Outside Groove Executive Editor. “Mike meets the aforementioned criteria and then some. We’re truly blessed to have him on our team. His experience, talent, and passion for motorsports photojournalism are extraordinary.”
