Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races for August 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 2012

Another hot weekend brings more hot car events to the Kansas City area.

The Puddle Jumper Days car show has been an Odessa tradition for years, so if you’re east of town, you’ll want to check that out. Abundant Life Church in Lee’s Summit is having a car show, so there’s something for you southerners. And the Falcon Club will be at the City Market, so that’s something for the folks in the heart of the city.

Cruise nights are everywhere. I usually hit the downtown Parkville cruise, but there are others in Harrisonville, Raymore, Blue Springs, and Lenexa, just to name a few. Or hit one of the great local short tracks for some racing action.

The entire Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule for this weekend is listed below.
