The latest “dirt” on the Dirty Kanza 200, is it’s organizers received the 2015 Governor’s Tourism Award this week, in recognition for the race’s impact on tourism in Kansas.

The award was given to the Dirty Kanza’s founder, Jim Mike Cummins, who accepted it on behalf of his staff, at the Kansas State Tourism conference in Wichita yesterday. 

The award is quite humbling,” Cummins said “I feel fortunate to be recognized but this award is for the entire organization and community. I wouldn’t be here without Tim and Kristi Mohn, LeLan Dains and the entire Emporia community. The community is the one who makes the riders feel special since they are treated like rock stars.”

Dirty Kanza co-owner, Kristi Mohn said, “It’s a huge honor for Jim and Dirty Kanza. Jim has given up a lot to come back and do this. It’s nice he’s recognized for all his hard work.”
