Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races for October 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 2012

You might think that since the calendar switched over to October, there wouldn’t be many car things left to do in Kansas City. But actually, this weekend’s schedule of events is surprisingly busy.

They are having the 40th edition of the antique car show in Lawrence, and that always brings lots of interesting things to the fairgrounds. And while you’re out in that direction, Heartland Park has a drifting competition scheduled for Sunday. I’ve been told that this Corvette gathering in Eureka Springs, Ark., is a big shindig.

Or just stay close to home. There are lots of great car shows and cruise nights in the Kansas City area this weekend, and this is the last one of the year for many of them. Or go watch the races at Lakeside or Grain Valley. Think about how much you’re going to miss this stuff when it’s over! The full Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule, plus this weekend’s NASCAR schedule, is listed below.

Last weekend, Brad Keselowski eeked out a fuel mileage win at Dover. For the most part, these Chase races haven’t been all that thrilling. With any luck, that’ll change this Sunday when they head to Talladega, which is a track that most people consider to be one of the most exciting on the circuit. The Camping World Trucks join the Cup guys on Saturday, while the Nationwide cars take some time off. Oh, and don’t forget, the circus heads to Kansas City next weekend. www.nascar.com.
