First-place finisher Colin Strickland carries his bike over the finish line after becoming the first racer ever to finish the DK 200 in less than 10 hours to win the 2019 Dirty Kanza.

Those who hope to ride in this year's Dirty Kanza need to register by midnight Sunday to have a chance.

The registration window for the Garmin Dirty Kanza lottery closes at 11:59 p.m. Sunday.

According to the DK website, due to high demand, it is unable to accommodate who wishes to participate in either 200-, 100-, 50- or 25-mile race. 

"Therefore, a random selection process will be utilized to determine who will be allowed to participate in the 2020 Dirty Kanza," reads the website.

Registration opened on Jan. 6, giving hopeful participants to weeks to throw their hats in the ring. Registration is free of charge, but credit card information is collected. Only those selected to participate in the race will be charged.

Winning entries will be selected on or about Jan. 27.

"The individuals whose names are selected will be awarded entry in the 2020 Dirty Kanza," reads the webiste. "These selected event participants will be notified by email, per the contact information they provide."
