Topeka drags, Basehor Icebreaker, and more. The Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule for May 17, 18, 19, 20 2012

If you are in Kansas City, there are tons of car things to do this weekend.

Head to Topeka for some NHRA drag racing. Cruise over to Basehor for a fun, laid-back car show in the park. Check out the radical works in progress at the Tallant’s Hot Rod Shop Open House.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg. How about the cruise Saturday night in Platte City? Or maybe your tastes run toward the dirt tracks at Lakeside and I-35 Speedways. Like big cars? The Cadillac Club will be at the City Market on Sunday. Like small cars? There will be a micro and mini car show in Westwood.

The complete Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule is listed below. Plus check out the NASCAR and NHRA television schedules at the end of the list.
