Meet RPM Act Champion U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (R-NC)

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

During his time in Congress, U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (R-NC) has proven himself to be a defender of motorsports. Rep. Hudson is the lead Republican co-sponsor of H.R. 3281, the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2021 (RPM Act), and is a passionate racing fan. As the hometown Congressman for the Charlotte Motor Speedway and much of the race parts industry, Rep. Hudson is the only member of Congress who prominently displays the hood of a racecar in his Washington, D.C., office.

Rep. Hudson is a leading voice on the U.S. House Energy & Commerce Committee for the RPM Act and has questioned the two past EPA administrators during public hearings about their position on the conversion of motor vehicles for racing.
