The Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act (RPM Act) has been reintroduced in both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate in the 2021-22 session of Congress after receiving a groundswell of support from grassroots racers and automotive enthusiasts like you.
Your voices are being heard, as more members of Congress are supporting the legislation, but we still have to push to ensure the RPM Act gets signed into law.

What’s the RPM Act?
In 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ruled that converting a vehicle designed for street use into a dedicated racecar went against the Clean Air Act. Left unchecked, that ruling would have massive impacts on the motorsports community and industry.
The RPM Act was introduced to address the issue. It’s proposed legislation that would ensure it stays legal to turn street vehicles into dedicated racecars.
In other words, passing the RPM Act will help guarantee your right to modify street cars, trucks, and motorcycles into dedicated race vehicles.
