Amping up support for the RPM Act

-- The bipartisan RPM Act protects the right to convert an automobile or motorcycle into a racecar used exclusively at the track.

-- Modifying a vehicle into a racecar is an integral part of America's automotive heritage. Many types of racing, including NASCAR, were founded on the premise that street vehicles, including motorcycles, can be converted into dedicated race vehicles.

-- Racing events are an economic driver for many communities and a source of affordable family-friendly entertainment for millions.

-- Congress never intended for the Clean Air Act (CAA) to apply to motor vehicles modified for competition use only. However, the EPA maintains that CAA requires converted vehicles driven exclusively on the track to remain emissions-compliant.

-- The RPM Act clarifies that transforming motor vehicles into racecars used exclusively for competition does not violate the CAA.
