SEMA- and PRI-Led Coalition Requests Congress Support Racetracks Impacted by COVID-19 Attendance Restrictions

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

SEMA and the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) have formed a coalition in partnership with 17 organizations that represent recreation, sports and amusement live venues that have experienced significant revenue declines during the COVID-19 pandemic. The coalition is focused on creating a federal program to provide grants to racetracks and other live entertainment businesses impacted by state and local attendance restrictions during the pandemic. The coalition has formally submitted a letter to the U.S. House and Senate Small Business Committee to request the creation of a $15 billion grant program that would provide a lifeline to racetracks and other live entertainment businesses.

It is important that members of Congress hear from SEMA members about providing financial support to racetracks. To send a letter to your lawmakers in Washington, D.C., please click here.
