Promote 2011 Kansas City-area car shows, cruises, and races to a large group or readers for free. It's as simple as sending an e-mail

Well, we’re getting very close to car show and racing season here in Kansas City. It has been so nice out a couple of times now that it seems like we should already be having some cruises!

I try to post upcoming car shows, car cruises, swap meets, and car races on a weekly basis either here on the Hover Motor Company blog or on my Examiner page throughout the summer. But I need your help!

If you know of a car event anywhere near the Kansas City metro area, you need to let me know about it so I can include it on the calendar. I know about a lot of them, and I pick up flyers when I’m out and about, but I certainly don’t know about all of them unless someone tells me.

As a car event promoter or fan, is it worth your time to send me a note? Well, between the HMC blog and the Examiner, I’ve pulled in more than 400,000 page views in the past year or so. Hundreds of people subscribe for updates wherever a story is posted. We get readers from all over the country (heck, even all over the world), but the majority our readers are local Kansas and Missouri car enthusiasts. That means a lot of people are finding out about car events right here.

So here’s what I need: The event name, date, location (including address), time, a brief description, a contact name, phone number, e-mail address, and website (or whatever applies). Then I’ll take the time to include it on the calendar the week of the event.

How much would you pay for such an incredible service? $199.99? $99.99? $9.99? Well act now, and this can happen ABSOLUTELY FREE! You just need to get off your keister and  SEND AN E-MAIL HERE with the details.

I’ll do the best I can to include it in the calendar. I hate missing out on this stuff. Of course, I should point out that even though I’ll put in a serious effort, e-mails get lost and I have been known to forget things on occasion, so even though it’ll more than likely show up, I stop short of offering a guarantee.

As usual, thank you for checking out I appreciate everyone who visits, and I hope you enjoy everything that gets posted here. Also, I welcome everyone to subscribe for e-mail updates if you aren’t already getting them yet (see the e-mail signup box in the right margin), and feel free to pass a link to this site to your friends and car lovers.

Bring on the sunshine!
