Thanks to your efforts, the 2017 RPM Act continues to gather momentum! Many of you recently joined fellow industry leaders at the 2017 SEMA Washington Rally to talk to lawmakers and urge swift congressional action on this critical legislation.
You also supported the Rally on social media. The hashtag #SaveOurRacecars generated more than 1,073 uses on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram during the Rally. More than 890 social-media users posted in support of SEMA’s Thunderclap campaign, reaching 394,765 people.
This energy encouraged enthusiasts from across the country to send more than 900 letters in support of the RPM Act, which helped add key congressional supporters. The bill now has more than 150 co-sponsors in the House and Senate combined, and the number is growing every day!
At the Rally, SEMA found that many friends in Congress are committed to passing the bill this year and protecting motorsports for future generations.
Thank you again for your ongoing support and enthusiasm!
