Kansas City car cruises and auto racing for March 23, 24, 25, 2012

We’re still a little early in the car show season here in Kansas City, but there are still a few things to do this weekend. The Weston Moonshiners start their 2012 cruises this Saturday, and several area dirt tracks are holding practice sessions. Plus, it’s supposed to be pretty nice out, so if you have an old car, it might be a good weekend to just get out there and drive it.

As the summer rolls along, I try to do one of these calendars each week. So if you have a car show or cruise in the Kansas City area that you would like to try and promote for 2012, be sure to drop me an e-mail at with all the information.

For a variety of reasons, NASCAR has been taking a lot of criticism lately. From the empty seats at Bristol last week to the surprise, controversial overturning of Jimmie Johnson’s penalty for illegal C-pillars at Daytona, people are really talking about the sport, but not all of it is good. But in the end, we have another weekend of guys driving V8, rear-wheel-drive Chevys, Fords, and Dodges (and some other Japanese brand) nose-to-tail and bumper-to-bumper in a concrete cereal bowl. And that’s what real car lovers care about. Race ‘em hard, tear ‘em up, and put on a good show!  Visit for more.
