Bipartisan Congressional Bill Will Protect Motorsports Future

 

RPM Act will allow racers to continue modifying street vehicles into racecars used exclusively at the track. ACT NOW!

In July 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) introduced a proposal that would have prohibited the conversion of street vehicles into race cars used exclusively for the track. While the EPA has withdrawn the proposal, the agency continues to assert authority under the Clean Air Act to regulate the modification of vehicles used for competition. Congressional action is the only way to guarantee that street vehicles can continue to be modified for the track, well into the future.

The Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act of 2016 is a bipartisan bill in Congress that will confirm that it has always been Congress’ intent that racecars are not include in the Clean Air Act’s definition of “motor vehicle.” The RPM Act makes clear that it has always been legal to modify a street vehicle into a racecar used exclusively at the track, and confirms that modifying these vehicles for exclusive track use would not be considered tampering.

Fill out the information below to urge your legislators to support and pass the RPM Act. It only takes a minute, and every letter counts!
