Rep. McHenry Talks RPM Act, Pushes for Quick Congressional Action

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

In a new Speed Sport News interview, lead RPM Act sponsor Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) takes his first few laps in a dirt late model at the East Lincoln Speedway in Stanley, North Carolina. Afterwards, he gives an update on the RPM Act and Congress’ current efforts to stop the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from regulating racecars and racing parts. As Rep. McHenry puts it, “This is absurd, and we’ve got to stop it.”

The RPM Act provides clarity to the industry and the racing community that the Clean Air Act allows motor vehicles to be converted into dedicated race vehicles. The bill protects tens of thousands of jobs and racers’ ability to purchase the parts and equipment that enable them to compete. It also protects an American tradition.
