SEMA

Time is running out—let’s finish the job now! Tell Congress to pass the RPM Act in 2020 and make clear that it is legal to convert street-vehicles into dedicated racecars. Your members of Congress could help enact this critical bill into law as the 2019-2020 legislative session nears a close—however, they need to hear from you right away!

Now more than ever, our message must be heard! Don’t wait—even if you already sent your lawmakers a letter in support of the RPM Act, they need to hear from you again as Congress decides which issues must be addressed in the final weeks of the session.
