Call Your U.S. Senators; Ask Them to Save Racing

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The future of racing remains at risk! The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has taken the position that it is illegal to make emissions system modifications to motor vehicles that are converted into racecars. This includes changes to the engine, exhaust or any other part of the emission system. There is a solution and support from your U.S. Senators is critical. S. 2659, the “Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2016” (RPM Act) makes it clear that the Clean Air Act does not ban the modification of street vehicles for use in competition.

Please Call Your State’s U.S. Senators Immediately to Urge Them to Co-sponsor S. 2659

  • The Clean Air Act excludes racecars and parts from EPA regulation. However, the EPA is trying to get around the prohibition by asserting that street vehicles can’t be modified into racecars.
  • The EPA has signaled that it will target companies that sell and install race parts. This action will adversely impact the availability of racing equipment.
  • S. 2659, the “RPM Act” clarifies that the Clean Air Act permits street vehicles to be converted into dedicated racecars.
  • S. 2659 will allow motorsports to continue to thrive in your state and around the country.

DON’T DELAY! Please voice your support for the RPM Act immediately by calling your state’s two U.S. Senators!
