Indoor shows, outdoor cruises, and more. The Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule for October 13, 14, 15, 16, 2011

The calendar of events is getting smaller and smaller. Every week, another cruise night or two disappears. Once Halloween gets here, the car show season in Kansas City ends for all intents and purposes. You had better get out there and enjoy some of this stuff before it’s too late.

The award for most flyers dropped in my front seat at various car shows this year goes to the Everything on Wheels Show, which is Saturday and Sunday at the Kansas City Market Center. This is a heavily promoted indoor deal, and may be worth checking out.

The award for nicest request to add something to the calendar goes to Thursday’s Baddest Ride and Sick'ist System Show, as Matt, the show’s promoter, said I must be a “man of high class and dignity” when he e-mailed me the details. I don’t know how true that is, but I hope he gets a good turnout all the same.

The full list of Kansas City-area car shows, car cruises, and car races for this weekend is below. And as always, when in doubt about the status of one of these, call ahead before you head out.

NASCAR on TV

Were you at the races at Kansas Speedway last weekend? If you were, you know that the races may not have been that exciting, but the points for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup are closer than ever. This weekend, the circus pulls into Charlotte Motor Speedway. Five time and defending champ Jimmie Johnson is four points out of the lead in third, but he won Kansas, and usually does well at Charlotte. But points leaders Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick have had some amazingly consistent finishes, so they won’t go down easy. The Nationwide Series also runs at Charlotte, while the trucks are in Vegas this weekend.  For the latest skinny, visit http://www.nascar.com/.

Friday, October 14. Concord, N.C. NASCAR Nationwide Series Dollar General 300 Miles of Courage. Charlotte Motor Speedway. 6:30 p.m. (c/t). ESPN2.

Saturday, October 15. Las Vegas, Nev. NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Smith’s 350. Las Vegas Motor Speedway. 2:30 p.m. (c/t). SPEED TV.
