HISTORY

 

The USMA was formed in 2015 by a coalition of industry businesses including Lucas Oil, Safety Kleen, Optima Batteries and others, who recognized the need for greater organization, data, and state/local level advocacy for racing.

 

PURPOSE OF THE USMA 

The U.S. Motorsports Association is the only grassroots racing advocate in America solely focused on the protection & promotion of all types of racing at all levels.  We work every day, all day, with one mission as America's Grassroots Racing Advocate.  

WE GET IT DONE. When the Pandemic hit, the USMA took immediate action and presented the racing industry with the first COVID-19 Toolkit.  Our team brought together and mobilized racing industry leaders within weeks of COVID Shutdowns.  While it remained a rough road that no one had ever traveled, the USMA remained persistent and ensured our voice was heard with local, state, and federal government. 

With all issues, we take pride in quick action that results in real solutions. "There is no question in my mind that our favorable outcome was a direct result of USMA's involvement. They were invaluable!"  — Bill Bader, Jr. President Summit Motorsports Park
