 Tour of Missouri supporter Cong. Russ Carnahan

We’ll be curious to see how FiredUp Missouri will spin this fantastic economic news. Lord knows President Obama and “No Way Jay’ aren’t creating jobs or spurring any economic growth!

The 2009 Tour of Missouri was met with tremendous support all across our state and I am proud to report that the numbers prove the same. Over 4,000 volunteers worked tirelessly to showcase Missouri across the globe as a world-class tourist destination. We were blessed with great weather through the entire week and, even though we visited smaller towns on this year’s revised route, spectators from all across the world helped us surpass last year’s success to once again make the Tour of Missouri the largest sporting event ever held in our state.”

The total economic impact for the seven-day event was $38.1 million, that’s up from $29.8 million in 2008 and $26.2 million in 2007.
