Annual shows, final cruise nights, and Corvairs. The Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule for September 30; October 1 - 2

Another beautiful fall weekend means another full schedule of Kansas City-area car shows, cruises, and races.

One of the bigger season-ending events comes from an unlikely source. The Basehor Project Grad Car Show at the high school packs in hundreds of cars each year.

Other big, annual shows are taking place in Lone Jack, Lawrence, and countless smaller communities all within a day’s drive of the KC Metro area. This is a busy time for these shows, and they tend to draw strong car counts every time. You can also go to Excelsior Springs and check out the big Corvair meet.

Where are you going to be this weekend? If you’re having trouble trying to decide, I am including the complete schedule of Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races below.

When to record NASCAR on your DVR

Well, they’ve had two of the ten playoff races in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, and Tony Stewart has won both of them. Brad Keselowski is also looking pretty strong. Jeff Gordon doesn’t seem too bad. But there are guys that you have to wonder about. Jimmie Johnson isn’t going to get six-in-a-row if he doesn’t pick up the pace. Kurt Busch is looking pretty lousy. And two horrible weeks back-to-back give Denny Hamlin little chance of rallying back. This week, they go to Dover, which rhymes with Hover, to continue the drama. The Nationwide Series joins the Cup boys, while the trucks are in Kentucky.  http://www.nascar.com/.

Saturday, October 1. Dover, Del. NASCAR Nationwide Series OneMain Financial 200. Dover International Speedway. 2:30 p.m. (c/t). ESPN2.

Saturday, October 1. Sparta, Ky. NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Kentucky 225. Kentucky Speedway. 7:00 p.m. SPEED TV.
