Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races for October 31; November 1, 2, 3, 4, 2012

Well, you knew it was going to happen. The Kansas City car show calendar is getting smaller and smaller. Soon, there will be nothing left to report.

Of course, for the folks that are hosting the events below, it isn’t all that small. If you're still looking for some automotive action, go to the Toys for Tots run at Rawhide Harley Davidson on Sunday. Or see some races at Grain Valley or Heartland Park. You might even buy yourself a project at the estate auction in Stillwell.

I’m also including the SEMA show in Vegas, because it is so big it just can’t be ignored, and the NASCAR schedule from Texas. The entire Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing calendar is listed below.

Jimmie Johnson took the W last week in Martinsville, and took the Sprint Cup points lead in the process. But Brad Keselowski made the most of what could have been a tough day to minimize the damage. Meanwhile, Denny Hamlin’s day was so bad that he’s all but out of the hunt for the championship at this point. All three series are running in Texas this weekend, so there will be lots to watch as the season winds down. www.nascar.com.
