Who is NWOK?
NWOK is a national organization whose goal is to encourage race teams and tracks to promote Winged Outlaw Kart Racing. The Organization regulates Outlaw Kart Racing with National Rules. Member race teams participate for Regional and National Points as well as in the Grand Nationals. The NWOK hopes to promote a quality atmosphere where families can work together to obtain their goals, or to spend time together while supporting others. This time not only helps family members feel appreciated, but it also helps you appreciate the accomplishments and talents of others more. As you take the other kids to watch a sibling, family member, or friends play sports or participate in an activity or race, it really builds comradery and brings the family together.
So you want to race a Sprint Car with the World of Outlaws but your budget can't afford one? Or maybe, you have a youngster that can't wait any longer and wants to feel the thrill of running wheel to wheel in a winged sprint car look - alike. If you are in either category, then your need can be met by a very real race car called an Outlaw Sprint Kart.
The Honda CR-500 2-stroke is the engine of choice in the open class. The engine produces 85-100 horsepower on a 265 pound race kart. As a comparison, a Nextel Cup Car generates about 800 horsepower on a 3200 pound race car. As you can see, an Open Outlaw Kart nearly doubles that in horsepower - to - weight ratio and is in all respects a real race car.
