Midwest All-Truck Nationals, local festivals and shows, final cruise nights and more. The Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule for September 9, 10, 11

It seems like lots of area cities have festivals and car shows this time of year. I guess they figure this is the last chance to get them in before it snows. You'll see these type of car shows in Shawnee, Olathe, and St. Joe, to name a few.

Me, I'll be spending most of my time at the annual Midwest All-Truck Nationals in Riverside. This is a big, three-day event, and it usually brings a really impressive collection of trucks to check out. Plus, since it occurs on the weekend of September 11, it seems appropriate that they have a big Toys for Tots drive at this event with the U.S. Marines.

Wherever you live in the KC Metro area, and whatever kinds of cars you like, you are sure to find an event to enjoy near you. See the full schedule of car shows, car cruises, and car races, plus the NASCAR schedule from Richmond, in the list below.

NASCAR on the Boob Tube

Jeff Gordon beat a charging Jimmie Johnson to win a rain-delayed race this week in Atlanta. And now, the stars and cars of the Cup series go short-trackin' in Richmond, Va. Former Lakeside driver Clint Bowyer called Juan Pablo Montoya a "jackass" after he crashed in Tuesday's race, so there's always the possibility of retaliation on the short track. The trucks have the weekend off.

Friday, September 9. Richmond, Va. NASCAR Nationwide Series Virginia 529 College Savings 250. Richmond International Raceway. 6:30 p.m. (c/t). ESPN 2.

Saturday, September 10. Richmond, Va. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Wonderful Pistachios 400. Richmond International Raceway. 6:30 p.m. (c/t) ABC TV.
