Mom wants to do car stuff on her special weekend. The Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule for May 11, 12, 13, 2012

Mother’s day is this weekend, and mom wants to do some car stuff. Luckily, there is a full schedule here in Kansas City.

The big Nebraska Furniture Mart car show is Saturday, so you could take mom there and also pick up a new sofa. Or check out a cruise night in Basehor, Overland Park, or North Kansas City. This car and airplane show at the New Century Airport looks interesting, too. Plus, it includes a dance, which your mom might enjoy.

Whether your mom likes car shows, car cruises, or car races, there are plenty of all of them in Kansas City this weekend. See the full calendar of events below.

This weekend is the Southern 500 at Darlington. You can almost hear that right side sheet metal getting scraped with those Darlington Stripes now.
