Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races for July 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 2013

Hot dog--this is going to be a busy one!  We are in the heart of summer, and the heart of car event season in Kansas City, and the calendar reflects that.  For special car shows this weekend, check out the Corvette Show at Zona Rosa, the annual show and shine at the Ag Hall of Fame, or Dale Wilch’s No Excuses Sunday at the Man Cave.  I’m planning to be at the huge Kustom Kemps Leadsled Spectacular in Salina this weekend, so hopefully I can bring some good pictures back from that.

This is also a big monthly cruise weekend with Belton, Liberty, Leavenworth, Independence, Overland Park, and Shawnee all having something.  Or take in some of the many races at the local dirt tracks, or demolition derbies at the local fairs.  The full schedule of Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races is in the lenghy calendar below.

  1. craig... i realize this is in wichita, but the blacktop nationals will be next month. nice gallery of cars from last year via the wichita eagle. gallery 3 has a lot of vettes. warning- clicking through the gallery will disable the back button, so you basically have to start over each time. http://www.kansas.com/2013/07/23/2901118/blacktop-nationals-getting-ready.html#emlnl=Morning_Headlines_Newsletter

    the blacktop nationals website has the details for this year and list winners from last year, woefully bereft of photos. http://www.blacktopnationals.com/index.php

    regards, mike t.
