Late last week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that it will withdraw a proposed rule that threatened the future of racing and modification equipment.
Earlier this year, nearly 170,000 racing enthusiasts and industry stakeholders rallied to tell the White House to stop an overreaching regulation from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act is gaining Congressional support as race enthusiasts and industry stakeholders flood lawmakers’ offices on Capitol Hill with letters urging them to support the legislation.
The issue that sparked nearly 170,000 individuals in the racing industry to sign a White House petition earlier this year is NOT yet resolved. Even if the EPA removed the proposal in question, Congressional action is the only way to guarantee that street vehicles can continue to be modified for the track.
