Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races for September 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 2013

It’s hard to believe, but the car show season will be going dark soon in Kansas City.  Of course, that means that some of the biggest events of the year are scheduled before the lights go out.  For example, the Ol’ Marais River Run it this weekend in Ottawa, and they don’t get much bigger than that.  The Boy Scouts have handed me somewhere around 247 fliers for their upcoming car show in Lee’s Summit this Saturday.  Of course, you’ve got your Platte City Cruise, your North Kansas City Cruise, and the Jesse James Festival Car Show in Kearney.  You may also note that the racing portion of the calendar is getting shorter, which means you better get some short track action in while you can.

Incidentally, I'm planning to be in Ottawa on Saturday with my dad in his 1961 Corvette.  Stop by and say hi, and if you want to buy a Hover Motor Co. T-Shirt, I should have a few of those available too.

See the entire Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule for September 18, 19 20, 21, 22 in the calendar below.
