Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races for October 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 2012

You might think that there are no more car events left to do in Kansas City at this point in the season, but that’s not exactly true. There are all kinds of season-ending and festival type car shows this time of year, including one at Bonner Springs High School and the Bass Pro Shop in Olathe.

Looking for a nice cruise? Try the Basehor Boys event on Friday night, or maybe the Riverside Red-X Cruise on Saturday. Or, if you want to buy a new old car so you’ll be ready for next year’s car show season, head on down to the Branson Auto Auction.

The complete list of Kansas City-area car shows, car cruises, and car races is listed in the calendar below.

Yeah, they wadded up a bunch of cars on the last lap, but at least last week’s race last week at Talladega was exciting. That’s more than you can say for most of the NASCAR races this year. Hopefully they’ll carry some of that excitement to Charlotte this weekend, as the Nationwide and Sprint Cup cars will run a couple of shows under the lights. The trucks get another weekend off. www.nascar.com.
