Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing calendar for July 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 2012

The weather has been pretty brutal already this summer, but there are still lots of cool car events taking place all over the Kansas City area this weekend.

SEMA has declared Friday the 13th (yikes!) as “National Collector Car Appreciation Day,” so drive your old car to work, then take it to the Basehor Boys cruise night at the Basehor Sonic, or maybe the Fast Fridays event at KC Trends in Overland Park. The head out Saturday for the big Vineyard Grand Classic Car Show, the COR Car Show, or even the North Kansas City Cruise.

Whatever your preference, the full calendar of Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races, plus the NASCAR schedule, is listed below.
