Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing calendar for July 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 2012

Where are you going to be this weekend? Well, if you love cars, and you live in the Kansas City area, there are lots of great choices.

The Outta Control Hot Rods Cruise in Platte City is turning into a must-attend event. The Corvette Club of Kansas City is setting up in the Zona Rosa shopping area. Or check out some Model A Fords at the City Market. And if you like to watch your cars in action instead of sitting in a parking lot, you can’t go wrong with races like the ones at Lakeside Speedway Friday night.

The full Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule is listed below.
