    This just in from PRI and SEMA.

    Attention Motorsports Professionals:

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a regulation to prohibit conversion of vehicles originally designed for on-road use into race cars. The regulation would also make the sale of certain products for use on such vehicles illegal. The regulation would impact all vehicle types, including the sports cars, sedans and hatch-backs commonly converted strictly for use at the track.

    The good news is that SEMA is at the forefront of an effort to prevent the EPA regulation from taking effect and we have an action step that you can take to help get the job done!

    Congressional legislation (H.R. 4715), the “Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2016” (RPM Act), has been introduced. The language in H.R. 4715 makes clear that competition-only cars, including converted street vehicles, are excluded from EPA regulation under the Clean Air Act.

    Please contact your member of Congress and urge them to support the RPM Act by clicking here.

    PRI is proud to partner with SEMA on this critical issue. For the future of your business and the sport of auto racing, we ask that you join us in the worthwhile fight!

    Thank you.

    I love that it's the "RPM Act".

    There is now a bill in Congress called the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act, -- the RPM Act — that will be coming up for a vote in the House and Senate. SEMA has a website that will generate a letter to your representative if you fill in the required information.

    The RPM Act will amend the Clean Air Act to permanently protect people's ability to convert production cars into racecars. Here's the link:
