NASCAR, car shows, and monsters, oh my! Kansas City car events for the weekend of February 11, 12, 13, 2011

It has been awhile since there has been enough significant car stuff to bother doing one of these “Upcoming Events” calendars, but there are a few really big ones this weekend that are worth mentioning.

If you’re in Kansas City, you have the option of attending one of the biggest hot rod and classic car shows of the entire season at Bartle Hall, and/or you can hit the always-fun Monster Jam event in the Sprint Center.

And of course, if you’re into stock car racing, NASCAR Speedweeks kicks off with the Budweiser Shootout, and the ARCA cars and stars roll out with their first race of the season, all on Saturday.

So without further adieu, check out the full weekend schedule below.
