  • Tell Congress to Pass the RPM Act

    If you weren't aware, there's a bill in Congress that will preserve our ability to convert production cars to racecars. The bill needs our support, and the only way to do that is to let our representatives know our position. The SEMA Action Network has made it as easy as filling in your name and address and clicking a button.

    Here's the body of the letter you would be sending to your representative by clicking the link below:

    "As a constituent, I respectfully request that you cosponsor H.R. 5434/S. 2602, the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2019 (RPM Act). The bipartisan RPM Act protects the right to convert an automobile into a racecar used exclusively at the track.

    Modifying a vehicle into a racecar is an integral part of America's automotive heritage. Many types of racing, including NASCAR, were founded on the premise that street vehicles-including motorcycles-can be converted into dedicated race vehicles. Racing events are an economic driver for many communities and a source of affordable family-friendly entertainment for millions, with participants that range from professionals to novices using converted race vehicles.

    Congress never intended for the Clean Air Act to apply to motor vehicles modified for competition use only. However, the EPA maintains that Clean Air Act requires converted street vehicles competing on the track to remain emissions-compliant even though they are not driven on public streets or highways.

    The RPM Act clarifies in Federal Law that transforming motor vehicles into racecars used exclusively for competition does not violate the Clean Air Act. It is imperative that Congress passes the RPM Act in order to provide long-term certainty to racers and motorsports parts businesses.

    Thank you for your consideration."

    If we don't make our voices heard then we deserve the bad laws we get.

    To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?
