Road trip: CO to GA

Just agreed to buy a M3 in Colorado Springs. Gonna drive it back to GA next week. Google's suggested route takes me through KCMO, STL, and Nashville.

What sites/attractions should I stop to see? Restaurant recommendations are always welcome. Any good driving roads out there?

Looking forward to your suggestions!

It might be late but I would avoid, driving through KS and MI. Very boring drive.

Once in CO, take the M3 for some mountain runs. Pikes peak at Manitou springs(if the current mudslide didnt close the highway 24), 15 minutes from CO springs one of the best drives you can have in the whole country.
Other places would be on East I70. Towards Mt.Evans, CO.
Driving west on I70 is boring till you cross MI.
Try to stop at Topeka, KS. Its a nice town.
Take a night break in Kansas City, MI. Best BBQs there.

I fly out tomorrow, so not too late. I'll bop around Colorado Springs for a couple days, Pikes Peak is on the itinerary.
Chance would have it that the qualifying laps for the next Rolex Grand Am race are Friday in KCMO. Gonna meet a friend at the speedway there to watch.
