Kansas City car shows, car cruises, and car races for October 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 2013

This is the second-to-the-last Kansas City car show, cruise, and racing calendar that will be posted here for the year, so that should tell you that you need to get out there and do something before it’s too late.  Both the North Kansas City Cruise and the Hartman Heritage Center Cruise are really big Saturday night events.  The Heart of America Trucking Show at Kansas Speedway is supposed to feature a big rig show and shine.  And the Crown Pointe Church Car Show could be pretty fun.  I also included the races at Grain Valley and Mayetta in the main calendar.

See the entire Kansas City car show, car cruise, and car racing schedule in the calendar below.  And remember, this can be a volatile time of year for car events, so it never hurts to call ahead and confirm.
