All kinds of cars, big and small, in the Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule for June 8, 9, 10 2012

Whether you like your cars full-sized, or you’re into something a bit smaller, there’s plenty to do around Kansas City this weekend.

For scale model enthusiasts, the Heartland Model Car Nationals will showcase all sorts of talented scale model builders, plus there is a nice swap meet where you can buy model cars of your own. It’s a pretty big event in the model car world around here, and one you won’t want to miss.

If you like your cars in 1:1-scale, there’s plenty for you too. North Kansas City, Basehor, and Independence all have big cruises this weekend. There’s a big MOPAR show in Olathe. Or check out the Fieros at the City Market.

I didn’t write a story about it, but I watched the races at Lakeside Speedway last Friday night. They had at least 100 race cars, and the action was fast and entertaining. BHo is eight-years-old, and he was glued to every single lap. Oh, and they’re back at it again this Friday.

The entire car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule is listed below.

Televised NASCAR

The stars and cars of NASCAR head to the triangular-shaped Pocono Raceway for the almost-oval that drives like a Road course. This marks the first week that the television brdcasts shift over to TNT instead of FOX, which is OK with me, because I was starting to get too much Darrell. Don’t forget to tune-in!
