Call Your U.S. Senators Now to Save Racing from Government Threat!

 

Many thanks to those who have signed the letter to Congress in support of the “Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2016” (RPM Act).  Given the potential impact of this rulemaking on racers and fans nationwide, support from U.S. Senators nationwide is critical in passing the bill.  As such, the SEMA Action Network (SAN) needs your Senators to cosponsor the RPM Act (S. 2659) if they haven’t done so already.  As you may know, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has taken the position that it is illegal to make emissions system modifications to motor vehicles that are converted into racecars.  This includes changes to the engine, exhaust or any other part of the emission system.  S. 2659, the “Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2016” (RPM Act) makes it clear that the Clean Air Act does not ban the modification of street vehicles for use in competition.  Many thanks for your support of this important effort.

Please Call Your State’s U.S. Senators Immediately (Full List Below) to Urge Them to Cosponsor S. 2659 Using the Following Points In Your Conversation:

  • The Clean Air Act excludes racecars and parts from EPA regulation.  However, the EPA is trying to get around the prohibition by asserting that street vehicles can’t be modified into race cars.  
  • The EPA has signaled that it will target companies that sell and install race parts.  This action will adversely impact the availability of racing equipment.
  • S. 2659, the “RPM Act” clarifies that the Clean Air Act permits street vehicles to be converted into dedicated racecars.
  • S. 2659 will allow motorsports to continue to thrive in your state and around the country.
