1200cc OUTLAW INFORMATION PACKAGE

What is an Outlaw Mini-Sprint?

The Outlaw 1200cc Mini-Sprint is a "World Of Outlaws" appearing sprint car built on a midget style chassis, using a 1200cc motorcycle engine, self-starting, with chain drive. These cars weigh a minimum of 725 pounds. Engines produce between 150 and 210 horsepower, providing an excellent power to weight ratio.

Where do they Race

Cars of this type are designed to race on 1/5 mile to 1/2 mile, dirt tracks. These race cars are usually a support show for midgets, sprint cars, IMCA modified, etc. Outlaw 1200cc Mini sprints are serious race cars, producing speeds close to midget and 360 sprint car times on 1/4 and 3/8 mile tracks.

Who Races These Cars

Outlaw 1200cc Mini sprints are an excellent entry level open wheel race car for the aspiring sprint car or midget racer. These cars teach a young driver and crew chief about the fundamentals of front engine open wheel race cars, as seen on the TNN World of Outlaws, and the ESPN Thunder TV Programs.

The weekend warrior who loves open wheel racing, but can’t afford a midget or sprint car finds the Outlaw 1200cc Mini sprint a great way to get the excitement of serious open wheel racing at a price a family person can afford. The nice thing about these cars is its fun for the whole family, young and old, male or female. Many open wheel racers who have gone on to midgets and sprint cars enjoy racing the Outlaw 1200cc Mini-Sprint at USOMA National Events.

Cost

The cost of the Outlaw 1200cc Mini sprint is very reasonable compared to the cost of a sprint car or midget. New rolling chassis can be purchased from professional builders for $6,925 to $10,500 dollars. New engines from the manufacturer can be purchased for $3,995 to $4,500 dollars. Engines from a professional builder cost from $6,500 to $ 9,500 dollars. Experienced (Used) cars/rollers can be found from $ 1,500 to 10,500 dollars. Used engines can be found from $850 to $2,500 dollars.
