Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races for July 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 2013

Of course, this is 4th of July weekend, so people are going to be busy with their fireworks shows, barbecues, and what not.  But that doesn’t mean there are some car-related activities out there too.  Some of them are a bit of a drive from Kansas City, but the usual cruises at Hartman Heritage Center and Longbranch Saloon are still nice, big local events.  Or, if you want to see something big within a few hours drive, head to the Goodguys show in Des Moines—there won’t be one in Kansas City this year.  You can usually catch a nice fireworks show at the local dirt tracks this weekend too.

See the entire Kansas City (and surrounding area) car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule in the calendar below.
