If you want to stay close to home, be sure to go to the Basehor Boys Cruise Night on Friday, or the Gibson’s General Store Cruise on Saturday. Of course, you can also head west for a car show in Wichita, or east for a swap meet near St. Louis. Whatever you decide to do, you better do it now. Old Man Winter is coming.
I put everything I could find on the very short list below. You can also see the NASCAR television schedule from Phoenix this weekend.
