What to do ... what to do? The Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing calendar of events for July 9, 10, 11

The Fourth of July may be over, but the car show season is really exploding around Kansas City. From cruises to races, there is plenty to do all over town.

The American Street Rod Association has moved their big show from the E.H. Young park in Riverside to Park Hill South High School because of the high water on the Missouri River. Lakeside Speedway will be closed for awhile because of the same thing.

Cruise nights will be at the Riverside Red X, the Longbranch in Overland Park, the Sonic in Basehor, and at several other places in the area. Sometimes you wonder how there can be enough old cars around town to attend them all, but somehow, there are.

Call ahead if weather or flooding might be an issue. The full schedule of events is listed below.
