The owner of Beech Bend Park was honored for his contributions to Kentucky tourism.

Dallas Jones received the Unbridled Spirit Hospitality Award in Frankfort, Ky., on May 15, 2007, as part of National Tourism Week.

Jones bought Beech Bend Raceway in 1984. Three years later he purchased the adjacent campgrounds and amusement park.

Last year, the popular tourist destination attracted 400,000 visitors and brought in over 26.5 million people.

The Unbridled Spirit Hospitality Award was given to someone from each of the Commonwealth's nine tourism regions.
