The SEMA Action Network (SAN) is on the move this summer to let motorsports participants and fans know about the “Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act”—the Congressional bill that clarifies that street vehicles may continue to be converted into race cars used solely on the track. There is already a lot of information about the RPM Act circulating, and the SAN will continue to connect with the industry to explain what the bill is and why it is important.
Up next is the inaugural Rev’n Rods & Heartland Music Tour. Join us July 17–22 for six days of the hottest rides, the coolest cars and the brightest stars! The event is a thrilling combination of car shows, a driving tour and nightly concerts. SAN representatives will be on hand to explain why the future of racing is at risk, update visitors on the current status of the RPM Act and let the community know how they can help protect the racing industry. After all, the bill is critical to guaranteeing that the future of motorsports is protected.
Each day’s events will feature a car show complete with vendors, exhibits, food and beverages with admittance free to the general public. Every night will end with a ticketed concert featuring the legends of country music. Owners of hot rods, street rods, motorcycles and classic automobiles are encouraged to go on tour with Rev’n and Heartland for one stop or even the whole trip. Each registration includes two free nightly concert tickets per vehicle.
The details for each stop are as follows:
July 17 – Nashville, Tennessee, at Fontanel featuring Sammy Kershaw, Aaron Tippin and Collin Raye
July 18 – Southaven, Mississippi, at Landers Center featuring Restless Heart
July 19 – Cape Girardeau, Missouri, at A.C. Brase Arena featuring Terri Clark
