Kansas City car shows, car races, and car cruises for August 28, 29, 30, 31, and September 1, 2013

Over the past decade or so, Labor Day weekend was extraordinarily huge for car folks in Kansas City because of the Goodguys show at Kansas Speedway.  Well, they’re not having that event this year.  Does that mean the weekend is a bust?  No—far from it.  For many people, the Greaserama, which will be at the Platte County Fairgrounds this year, is the most important event of the season.  Interestingly, there is another car show taking place at the Boulevard Drive-In, which is where the Greaserama was held in the past.  There are also a bunch of big cruises, including Liberty, and a myriad of car races to choose from.

See the entire schedule of Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races in the calendar below.
