Understanding the Significance of the RPM Act in Motorsports

The Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act is a bipartisan bill written by United States Representatives Patrick McHenry (R-NC) and Paul Ruiz (D-CA). The bill aims to protect the right of Americans to convert any street-legal car, truck, or motorcycle into a race vehicle. The RPM Act also protects the automotive parts industry’s ability to sell products that are intended to enable racers to compete.  This Act is backed by the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), which is urging everyone who has a stake in this issue to contact members of Congress and ask them to support this bill. The RPM act is also backed by the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) as well as the SEMA Action Network (SAN).

SEMA Action Network’s Call to Action

SEMA President and CEO Chris Kersting says, “SEMA looks forward to working with Congress to enact the RPM Act and make permanent the Clean Air Act’s original intention that race vehicle conversions are legal.” He went on to thank Representatives McHenry and Ruiz for introducing this bill that will protect automotive racing and the businesses that produce, sell, and install parts that enable racers to compete. The five other original sponsors of the bipartisan act include Representatives Richard Hudson (R-NC), Kurt Schrader (D-OR), Bill Posey (R-FL), Gil Cisneros (D-CA) and Michael Burgess (R-TX).

According to Racingin.com, there are over 1,200 racetracks across the U.S. With that many racetracks, there come many racecar enthusiasts who want the freedom of converting their cars into a racecar.

To get involved, SEMA Action Network made it easy for you to fill out a form and submit it to Congress.
